frost on snowberries #1429, originally uploaded by Nemo's great uncle.
Snowberries also known as Symphoricarpos or Coral Berry is related to Viburnum. I have always loved these clusters of white, pink and even light green balls. The plant are native to Canada and grow well in the northern United States.
If you are lucky enough to grow them in your backyard or have them imported through a nursery, you might try making this lovely flower arrangement designed by Stef Adriaenssens.
What you need:
3 stems Eucharis
3 water glass test tubes
1. Glue the water filled glass test tubes in a triangular arrangement towards the center
2. Glue the glass crystals to the bowl and around the test tubes
3. Cut and arrange the Eucharis in the tubes
4. Glue the Snowberries between the crystals
The lovely arrangement below is by Geert Pattyn.
