Chickadee Hill Flowers

My friend Emily Henry is an incredible gardener and flower arranger. She and I are friends from high school and every time I travel home to Maine we see each other and talk about plants. Her gardens are amazing and her cut flower garden is packed full of amazing plants. I always learn a few new plants, especially unusual annuals. Please see her website Chickadee Hill Flowers.
Above is a shot of her cutting garden. Some of her favorites to arrange with are the lovely bronze fennel, queen ann's lace, and the many different Monardas.

Daucus carota var. sativus 'Black Knight'

Craspedia globosa in the foreground

Monarda x hybrida 'Bergamo'

This is an annual Monarda that has all these wonderful color variations, from intense pink/purple to this pale pink/white.

Her perennial gardens!

Tropaeolum argentinum

Emily brings this over wintered plant outside and lets it climb through her evergreen shrubs! Recently the blog Growing with Plants posted about this plant, read more here.
