Adding Linear Flowers
I usually begin flowering my altar sprays with a tall, linear flower. This means the flowers have a long stem and create the framework for your final size of the design.
I've chosen to use liatris. It has long stems with a spikey purple blooms coming out of the top.
The flower is very hardy and comes 10 stems to a bunch.
You can deepen or lighten the color by using a flower tint. The blooms could be changed by using pink, blue or a deeper purple.
I begin my design by placing the tall liatris right in the center of the floral, straight up and down.
