L-shaped and asymmetrcal triangle design
This arrangement is a traditional L-shaped design. This design would be suitable to use in the corner of a windowsill, or an apartment window, or two either end of an altar, or a mantelpiece, so it is quite versatile. The design is similar to an asymmetrical triangle, but one side is kept much lower than the other, and is longer, to form the L-shape, which can be left or right-handed, whichever suits your purpose. To form the outline of the design, I have used Berberis thunbergii atropurpurea, a lovely purple-leaved shrub, which goes very well with the pink flowers used. Other foliage used was Mahonia japonica, Hedera colchica 'Sulphur Heart' and Liriope muscari variegata (Lily Grass). The flowers used were all pink, and for the focal point I have used Lilies. Other flowers used were Roses, spray Carnations, and spray Chrysanthemums.
This arrangement is a traditional asymmetrical triangle. That means that one side of the triangle is longer than the other. It is a design which is very versatile, and can be used in many situations. To establish the height and width, I have used Phormium tenax purpurea, which goes well with the pink flowers used. To form the outline of the design, I have used Eucalyptus gunnii (juvenile form), which has a lovely blue-grey colour. Other foliage used was Heuchera 'Velvet Night' with purple leaves, and Hedera colchica 'Sulphur Heart'. The flowers used were all pink, and for the focal point, I have used Lilies. Other flowers used were Roses, spray Carnations, spray Chrysanthemums and pink Chamelaucium uncinatum (Waxflower).
