Achillia Floral Artistry

Named after the Greek god Achilles, these striking bee-friendly plants offer much inspiration for arrangers. Lynn Bottamley sourced material from the National Plant Collection of Achillea at John Cullen Gardens to create these summery designs.

Dried Achillea heads take spray paint very well. Here they are included in a textural design of Xerochrysum bracteatum (strawflower), dried poppy seed heads, reindeer moss and gum nutsall within a wool-wrapped ring.
