I think that of all the flowers, the classic nature of camellia sits right at the top of my list. I adore them when they first appear in the early spring and as much as I know they will not last, to enjoy indoors floating in a crystal bowl is a marvellous sight.
Many of you have asked if ‘just foliage’ in a vase is acceptable. To that I have to say, absolutely yes. In today’s floral designing anything goes and to be honest, if that is what your décor calls for, then don’t be in two minds – just do what gives the visual you desire.
