Persimmons

One of the true signs of fall for me is when the leaves of the Persimmon tree turn to a gorgeous orange-red tone and the green fruits turn the perfect shade of orange. Slowly the leaves start to fall from the tree and just the orange persimmons are left on the stark brown branches.
Persimmons add an interesting shape to floral arrangements, if you haven’t tried them yet I’d recommend you do. They are long lasting and don’t require any special care.

I think this is very interesting idea submitted by Kathleen:
“This arrangement is the result of a fun project with Debra Prinzing that we call the #Friendlyflowers challenge. Basically, we sent each other a vintage vase to create a design using only locally grown flowers and foliage and post a pics on social media. All the product used this arrangement is from my parents’ amazing garden. My design inspiration came from a transitioning persimmon tree on the farm they live on. I thought they would be a great in this beautiful frosted glass pedestal vase. Most of the persimmons are green however some orange peaks through the leaves of the branch. Plus, the pink of the sedum blossom was a perfect partner in the base of this arrangement.”
