    Thanks Charisse! The thorns of the trifoliate orange branch are holding the zinnia and tithonia stems in place. Each once is speared onto a thorn and the branch ins submerged in water (the water level is almost at the top of the vessel). The branch acting as a kubari (or holder) is lightly wedged in place inside the glass vessel without being too tight against the sides, this is important with branch material so that your ceramic or glass container does not crack or break from pressure.

    The simplicity takes me breath away.
    Theoretically, could I do this using ONE type of flower that had the stem configured like this already?

    Yes Karin, you could use one type of stem in that manner. Just make sure the weight of the bloom isn’t too heavy or it will be difficult to balance. But feel free to experiment, you never know what might work for you!
