Heliconia, Frangipani and Red Ti leaves

Arrangement # 104
This morning I bought a glass vase that is looking i.e. by the look of its curves. I was thinking of how to exploit its curvature. For many weeks now I am thinking of other ways to use the dark red/black coloured leaves of the Red Ti ( cordyline terminalis). Today I rolled it up and inserted three leaf blades into the vase to hold together the stalks of the pink frangipani and the heliconia latispatha.Wrapping the flower stalks with the Red Ti leaves in water removed the nakedness out of sight.
By one look there's no doubt that the lady in red is ....well.... Dressed to Kill.
