Parallel vertical arrangement

Parallel vertical arrangement

my yesterday's assignment. I had a plant list, knew what kind of arrangement it was supposed to be - the rest was up to me. To apply my knowlegde and skills:)

Absolutely beautiful!
Different textures, different colors, different leaf shapes..
The arrangement's contents contrast well and keep the eye
moving. Nicely done!

If that was an "assignment" project, you should get an "A+"!

I am curious.. What is the vertical "cone shaped" flowering plant? Looks a little like Larkspur or Lupine.. I've been wanting to grow something like that in my main garden to add a little vertical element.

Thank you N2organic - I have very good teacher at my course - I write down every single step she is showing us - then it's easier to do my own arrangement. The flower you are asking about it is Aconitum. That's a herbaceous perennial, good for semi shade, tall about 1.0 - 1.5 - and you have to be careful with this one - it's posionous (to some degree of course). But I like it - they mostly come in dark blue, but I have seen some different varieties as well.

Thank you SO much for the positive plant ID, Okasia!
THAT is what I have been looking for to plant in an undeveloped area on my property! The height and light requirements will be PERFECT for that area!
Oh boy, oh boy! I cannot wait 'till spring!
