Traditional flower designs do not make use of any accessories apart from the vase, but rather the focus is on the number and colours of the flowers. Oriental flower designs focus on the appearance of the arrangement, linear lines that emphasise the negative spaces and texture and form of the flowers. A modern flower arrangement includes the minimal use of bright flowers and more accessories. It does not follow the traditional outline of arranging flowers as the styling depends solely on the preferences of the designer.
CULTIVATION _ Asters are most often used now as filler in bouquets and as a delicate accents in gardens. They grow best in rich, wet soil in direct sun _ partial shade, and should be thinned and replanted every two years. Because Asters grow in thick bunches, they can be separated and replanted in gardens in the spring. Asters bloom from mid summer _ early fall and are a perfect choice for a fall wedding bouquet.
