One and Done

Doesn’t get much simpler than this! Buy a box of those stemless wineglasses, fill with cool water, and float cut Apple Blossom Camellia flowers. Set a line of them down the length of a dining room table for an informal touch.

Mix and Match

Stuffed to overflowing, this vase of two different fall-blooming sasanqua Camellias (red Yuletide and pink Shishi Gashira) is made up of branches cut long so that the glossy leaves get their due too.

Winter Flower Story 

Foraged from the yard, this Renaissance painting worthy display of berries, kumquats, amaryllis blooms and Alba Plena Camellia would bring depth and drama to the winter tablescape.

 Best for Bedside

Imagine waking up to a low bowl massed with the light pink, peony style blooms of Debutante Camellia, one of earliest to bloom. We love the contrast here of hard, shiny metal and delicate, powdery blooms.
