Friday flowers

This week we have the vibrant colours back - they seem to suit the hot weather - my favourite cut flower of the week is crocosmia "Lucifer" - much taller than the crocosmia that has escaped out of gardens and into the verges, and a much richer colour. It is a great cut flower - it looks architectural in a vase on its own, and is strong enough to work in a mixed bunch as well. It lasts about 10 days. We have a tiger lily that is about the same colour and they look great mixed with purple drumsick alliums in a coloured glass vase - very Venetian.
