Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter Fire' - This deciduous shrub has oval, mid-green leaves and produces small, creamy-white flowers in May and June. But it's really grown for the brilliant, flame-coloured stems that are revealed when the leaves, which turn orange-yellow in autumn.
This is the best way to preserve the beauty and fragrance of a beautiful bouquet of fresh roses. Drying them make them great embellishments for cards, confetti for weddings and bridal showers, and potpourri. http://www.ehow.com/how_2293715_dry-rose-petals.html?utm_source=pinterest.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=inline&utm_campaign=fanpage
1 Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna’ from the mildly aromatic silvery green leaves to the violet flower spikes with purple stems. Bees love the flowers that stay looking sharp long after the petals fall, thanks to papery bracts that hold their colour. Dead-heading – either little and often or in one go – encourages new flowering side-shoots till October. 'Caradonna’ loves sun; use it as a purple ribbon through late season grasses or, at 18in (45cm), it is the perfect centrepiece for a pot.
