Colour is not the only thing that matters when creating a flower arrangement. There are shapes to consider: domed, spiky, single bloom, floating, grouped and open. Texture is also important. Some flowers have full heads while some have petals easily visible. Contrasting these types of textures can add visual interest. Foliage also adds variation to an arrangement and can give a lovely natural look.
