OCTOBER’S ARRANGEMENT of the month marries mounds pillowy Limelight hydrangea blooms with pale, fragrant roses and mochainto-pink-hued dahlias. A simple terra cotta vessel grounds these late-season blooms, allowing them to feel at home in any room of the house. In the garden, dahlias are the stars of late summer and autumn, blooming prolifically until the first frost. Limelights are showstoppers throughout late summer and all of autumn as well, transitioning from creamy white to pale green, then pale rose, before mottling into a final rusty pink as the latter season winds to a close.
