May: Flower of the month – Flowering Dogwood

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

Here the wisteria vines and flowering dogwood are combined in a rock surfaced hanging vase .
This is a nageire arrangement, bringing about a fresh set of flowerage as if cut out from an early summer hill scenery.
Branches of flowering dogwood are normally very simple in form and wisteria vines will do well adding accent to their simplicity.
Vines are one of the indispensable arranging components with a wide range of performing possibilities.


Materials arranged: Flowering Dogwood, Wisteria vines
