Texture is also important with cut flowers, as well as colour. You'll want a silk velvet dress made out of every one of these.

This collection contains:

I love cut flowers, the marrying of the inside with the outside. As Vita Sackville-West said, "A flowerless room is a soul-less room to my way of thinking; but even one solitary little vase of a living flower may redeem it."

Our relationship with the plant – cut and brought inside – does not then stop at a fleeting whisk past in the garden, but continues inside as a long hard stare. You've got to grow your own and with these beautiful cut-and-come-again varieties, you'll have buckets and buckets to choose from.
