Anigozanthos “Yellow Gem”
Glittering in the sun.
They come in a bit orangey, and turn into these dazzlingly bright yellow paws and then fade to orange from whence they came. Long lasting enough to be a perfect cut flower for your patterned ceramic vase on the sideboard. They can be 3 to 4 ft. tall, but I would trim them to about 18″ before putting them on my sideboard. Add a bit of beargrass, maybe some baby eucalyptus leaves… Too bad the Proteas aren’t in bloom right now too, since one big cone flower would go nicely.
I have no idea how to do floral arrangements, so I would ignore that if I were you.
