Flower Arrangements for Mother's Day

Nicole Juday Rhoads, PHS Director of Engagement, shows us how to make a beautiful flower arrangement using a combination of flowers and foliage you may have growing around your home.  

Hostas, the ever-popular spring perennial, may not produce blooming flowers, but the long green leaves featuring variegated foliage beautifully contrast with flowers while filling out space in your arrangement. One valuable trick—estimate your shrub and plant cuttings generously, as you can always trim them down if you like. Mother’s Day may be different this year, but even if you cannot get to the florist, take a look around to see what you can create with what is growing outside right now.
