Cutting and Arranging Dahlias – Flower Magazine

ARE THERE ANY UNWRITTEN RULES ABOUT COMBINING COLORS OR SIZES TOGETHER, OR IS IT STRICTLY DICTATED BY YOUR PERSONAL PREFERENCES?

When I arrange dahlias, I follow the rule of “bride, bridesmaid and wedding crasher.” The “bride” is your main focal point, the star of the display. The “bridesmaid” will complement your “bride” in either size, shape, or color. Then your “wedding crasher” is something unexpected or visually different. It can be a vibrant color like red or orange. Or it can be something completely different in scale, size, or form. Summer gardens yield a full spectrum of colors for us to enjoy, and dahlias are the most fun to play with!
