July 11, 2012 -- stewartia and Persian shield

It seemed important to include something from a tree in an arrangement here at the Polly Hill Arboretum, so I got permission to pick this Stewartia flower. Also in the snout of this pretty little teapot (which I found in our kitchen cabinet) is a sprig of purple Persian shield leaves (from yesterday's arrangement) and one pink clematis flower (which you can hardly see). There's lots of pinkish purple in the center of the white-petaled Stewartia flower, and I'm hoping these companions make that show up?
