1 Created by: Mr. Akin Edited by: Traci Hendrix IDENTIFYING CUT FLOWERS AND FOLIAGE

2 Why is it important to know how to identify flowers? To know what types of plant materials can be used in designs To be familiar with seasonality and availability of flowers To be able to visualize how the overall product will look when it is finished

3 Classifications of flowers and foliage Flowers and foliage are classified according to different shapes/forms We select certain flowers to create a style or effect we are trying to achieve (example: a tall arrangement would use different flowers than a small, compact arrangement)

4 Line Flowers and Foliage Are the skeleton of the arrangement Tall, erect spikes of blossoms Add height or width to the design

5 Form Flowers Distinct shapes Accent flowers to create a focal point Never mass these flowers together

6 Mass Flowers and Foliage Single stem One solid, rounded head at the top Add mass to the arrangement

7 Filler Flowers and Foliage Add the finishing touches to an arrangement Small, delicate flowers Use as background to highlight the pattern of the larger flowers
