By late summer, these hardy shrubs are bursting in riotous colors and textures. In this arrangement from Martha's Turkey Hill garden, soft lavender mopheads pop out against the tight buds of pink and blue lacecaps, showing off the assets of each.
Gather enough flowers for an abundant bouquet, leaving the stems long, and arrange in a vase of cold water. The full blooms will support one another, so no floral-arranging tricks are necessary to achieve your own magnificent display.
