Next, fill your "real" vase about two_thirds of the way with warm water. Make sure it doesn't leak. Add flower food if available. (Follow the instructions on the packet.) Place a few of your larger blossom flowers in the vase and step back. This will give you a better idea of how to proportion your bouquet. If the stems are too long, simply cut them shorter. If they are too short, try a different container, or add pebbles or marbles to the bottom of the vase to elevate your flowers.
The Aster grows in over 600 species and can also be found in a variety of colors: white, pink, lavender, red, purple. They are a popular choice for gardens due to their ability to attract butterflies, bees and birds. They grow to be less than a foot tall and are a good choice for filler or accent flowers in gardens.
