A drive through the countryside will surely bring you to an apple tree laden with fruit. And, of course, wild roses have grown gangly extending their branches out along the fence rows. Interesting tidbit of the day…did you know, the apple is a member of the Roseceae family? Yes, the rose and the apple are cousins. No wonder they work so well together in a floral arrangement.
Pick your favorites – green granny smith with green Jade roses, red delicious with red Freedom roses, and yellow golden delicious with yellow Emblem roses. Add a few foliages and you have a fabulous centerpiece. Soon you’ll declare “Hands off! Don’t be eating my apples. I need them for my flower arrangements”.
