Church Wedding Flowers

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.
