I don’t know the name of the plant that I utilized for all three of today’s floral projects. The tropical plant has a thick, woody stem. Where a flower would normally grow, instead has a tuft of thin, hair-like grassy elements. I spent considerable time browsing through Google Images, but could only find near-matches. One plant looked somewhat similar to my plants–hair grass. Although my curiosity has not been satisfied, I went ahead with the projects, because this was my first intent.
The lacquered, Indian brass vase contains a California poppy solitaire. A stem of tropical leaves and a hair grass plant enhance the presentation.
Dried plant elements and paper flowers have been placed in a hardwood vase that was turned by a local artisan. Hair grass adds the finishing touch.
A green Ikea bud vase is the base for red-dyed twigs. The hair grass unites the botanicals and the green glass by color.
