Sedum, amaranth, Japanese variegated grass, snapdragon, zinnia
My mister's coworker's wife broke her leg (really badly!) a week or so ago, so I sent him off to work this morning with a bouquet to cheer her up. The garden is pretty sparse this time of year so I had to go heavy on the amaranth. Mind you, I've given away two other amaranth bouquets and both people complained that it was hard to find a vase that they can't tip over. However, the mister and said coworker are problem solvers by nature.
