Florets - Floral Quote - # 144 - by Rachel Siegfried



'Florets - Floral Quote' is a series of blog posts where I feature quotes by authors - mostly well known in the flower world but you will also find some more obscure ones.

All of them have written one or several books about flowers, gardening, interior styling or interior design. Many are experts in their field but what is the most important is that they are all passionate about flowers.

I love books and in my ever growing library I look for quotes that I hope will be both helpful and useful for everybody who is arranging and styling flowers.  

Yellow Daffodils in Alvar Aalto Savoy Vase


"Narcissus make up for their limited choice in colour with an amazing variety of forms. These range from the well-known trumpet form of the daffodil, to the more unusual split corona - which looks more like an exotic orchid. Lending themselves to informal arrangements, narcissi look lovely when a few varieties are combined in a simple jug or vase."
