Pink Scented Table Centerpiece

To offer flowers with beautiful blossoms is a perfect choice for expressing feelings. Every time when I make an arrangement I am thinking about what plants are suitable to combine, keeping in mind what is the shape/texture/color/smell of the flowers and leaves; and why not, what is the meaning of the flowers used.  If you want to show enchantment and joy you may use lavender flowers, orange for enthusiasm, white for purity and happiness, red for love, courage and respect.

If you want to express gratitude and appreciation to your guests, use joyful pink flowers, eventually with dark green succulents and accent plants, when make a table centerpiece and I'm sure they will receive your message.

Can you guess what express most of my arrangements ?  Of course... they communicate happiness, joy of life, and gratitude because most of the scented-leaf pelargoniums make lavender,  pink or white flowers ;-)

I was looking long time for a round ceramic pot to make a pink scented table centerpiece. Few weeks ago, finally, I found one. I made a hole for good drainage and I potted inside pink mini-roses and one pelargonium Xfragrans "Pink Nutmeg" with rounded, fan shaped leaves emanating nutmeg-chocolate aroma.

Mini-roses speak silently to any person in a language known by their heart. Not only once I used colorful mini-roses in my mini-gardens. They are woody perennials profuse in their blooming and were bred to stay small in size, so they work well as edges or as main attraction in bonsai pots.

They resist for long time even in fancy small pots, given for long periods of time an exuberant growth of flowers.

Just trim back dead flowers and some new growth to maintain their shape and encourage start of new flowers. I like them even more because they are not grafted and even the suckers from the root stock are prolific bloomers.

Similar with other garden roses from Rosaceae family, they are really hardy and love to be kept outdoors, eventually in full sun, but may survive also indoor for long time if are well cared and watered frequently.
