I put this arrangement together a week ago, at the same time as I did the bouquet I posted last Monday. It has been holding up surprisingly well; better than the other bouquet to be honest.
I think it's due to the size of this vase and the available water for the plants. The other pot had a container for water set inside it and the water level kept going down quickly. Required refilling daily if not more.
This arrangement includes the same plants as the other one but all cut at more dramatic lengths. The only additions are fronds of Amsonia, Cimicifuga seedheads and some grassy inflorescence whose name I don't know. In this bouquet the green leaves of the Thalictrum on the lower left are slowly turning yellow. In the other bouquet, I cut them when they were yellow and so they dried up fairly quickly. This one is lasting nicely.
About half the fern fronds have curled up to varying degrees. Most of them look pretty good that way as they are still green. Thus they look quirky not like they are dying.
