November: Arrangement for the month – Winter Chrysanthemum

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

Arranged by Hiroko Suzuki

There are various kinds of chrysanthemums, amongst which the winter chrysanthemum distinguishes itself slightly from the other mums in its look.

Other than the yellow flowers like any other mums, its unique clogged leaves should be taken in advantage at arrangements.

Respect the expression the tips of its leaves show and the rhythm they  exude.

Leaves turning red add  warmth to the arrangement like charcoal fire of the hearth.


Components of the arrangement: Winter Chrysanthemum, Tsuruume(Celastrus orbiculatus) vine, kiwi vine
