This pretty arrangement is fast and easy. And free for anyone who has a few basic garden perennials, or who can steal borrow them from an unsuspecting friendly neighbour. You can make it in 5 minutes flat.

The key here is 3 of my favourite perennial plants – hydrangea, autumn joy, and garlic chive flowers. That’s it. It’s a no-fail arrangement – these blooms always look great together.

If you don’t have these plants in your garden, you should get them in there stat. They are 3 perennials that won’t let you down. They require virtually no care, grow just about anywhere, will bloom reliably, and fill out your garden this time of year when everything else is fading. And the garlic chives taste great next time you need something to throw in a salad or omelette!

To make this arrangement, I just headed out into the garden, cut a bunch of stems of each, trimmed them to roughly the same size, and plunked them into a vase. All in the time it took for my espresso to brew. I had a few salal leaves left from another floral arrangement, and I threw them in there. These flowers are long lasting, and the hydrangeas dry beautifully, so you can keep them around quite a while.

If you have any ivy growing on the side of your house, rip some off and tuck it in there. Or maybe a branch or two for a rustic touch. At this price point, you can afford to experiment!

Want to see what else I did with my hydrangeas? They’re my secret to turning $25 worth of flowers into 4 beautiful flower arrangements. And if that sounds like too much work for you, check out one of my favourite garden arrangements that takes only 30 seconds or less. ‘Cause who doesn’t love easy?

  1. Beautiful! I have several of these perennials in my garden and love to throw arrangements like these together. They add such a wonderful feel to a room … nothing like bringing the outdoors in 🙂

  2. I love that colour combination for fall! My garden dies by the end of summer 🙁 but now I’m inspired to go out there and see what I can scrounge up. Definitely ivy and maybe some herbs that have flowered. The rest I’ll have to “borrow” from a neighbour 😉

  3. I’ve never excelled at flower arrangements. You make it look so effortless! Bravo!

      This one is pretty fool proof – if you cut all the stems about the same length and plunk them in a vase, you’re done!

  4. Love this! I don’t have those plants in my garden but I do have a couple shrubs that are just as easy and starting to bloom again before winter.

    You have inspired me to go cut some clippings today and enjoy them inside the house. 🙂

  5. What a lovely combination, even unsuspecting friendly neighbours would approve of that beautiful bouquet!

      I find you can’t go wrong with hydrangeas. I have lots in my garden, so there’s always some that I can bring in. Thanks for dropping by!

  7. I adore how you just whip up the most beautiful flower arrangements! I’m pinning so I can plant these beauties this spring. 🙂

      These ones are foolproof, Laurie. And they practically grow themselves. I’ve got lots to share if you’re ever out this way 🙂

  8. I love your colour mix Dani, and hydrangeas are one of my favourites! What I like about hydrangeas is they just keep on giving long after they’ve been cut, and if one’s into it, even dried!
