Early bouquet

I'm very book smart but have no common sense, so when Neighbor M and I were admiring my Baptisia bushes yesterday and she told me that she cut some of her own for bouquets, it was as if she had showed me a unicorn farting rainbows and giving out gold for free. My brain is stuck on the cutting peonies, zinnia, and rudbeckia for anchors for bouquets but baptisia? Never would have thought of it on my own and very happy she thought of it for me.

B. australis species, 'Twilite Prairieblues', 'Solar Flare Prairieblues', and Nepeta 'Walker's Low'

Which late spring/early summer plants do you use in bouquets?


  1. Too funny!! I rarely cut anything from my garden but did just bring in a few peonies that were falling over. The baptisia is beautiful. :)

    1. I'm always so afraid to cut the peonies - they look so amazing outside! Hope you're enjoying yours :)
