This modern Sunflower arrangement is both easy and inexpensive. It is visually interesting, because it gives the eye a lot to look at: the swirling shapes of the Bear Grass compressed into the rectangular glass vase, the curled and pierced Tea Leaf, the boat shaped Tea Leaf that the vase sits on, as well as the yellow petals of the large diameter sunflower that contrast in value with its velvety black center.
You get this great modern look all for $3.25, providing you use Camellia Leaves and Tea Leaves from your yard. You can't beat that. If you haven't planted Tea Leaves yet, you should. I have them planted in the shade right outside my front door. They are not easy to kill, just water them once a week.
