"Vibrant, clashing colours - scarlets, vermilion, crimson, shocking pinks, sapphire blues, sherbet oranges, acid yellows ans lime greens - capture the spirit of city life. Whether you use them in harmonizing shades of a single colour or in startling, breathtaking combinations, flowers in the city should always look strong and contemporary. You can use flowers to create many moods - elegant, chic, ethnic, exotic, serene or sophisticated - all to enhance their surroundings. Use them to bring out the colours in a nearby painting or to complement a collection of objects. Flowers particularly suited to metropolitan living have strong shapes and definite personalities - tulips (Tulipa), roses (Rosa), ranunculus (Ranunculus), gerbera (Gerbera), amaryllis (Hippeastrum and orchids (Cymbidium) all fit the bill."
