Tan Flowers in Flower Arrangements

Since tan or brown colour is considered a dense colour, arranging bouquet or any flower arrangement using tan-collared flowers must be partnered with other flowers. The accompanying flowers must have a bright and vivid shade to create a contrasting balance to the flower arrangement. Arranging flowers that make use of only the tan flowers definitely makes the creation dull, boring, and too plain.

As an important source of nectar, the bees and butterflies are attracted to milkweed. Being the source of food of monarch butterfly larvae, milkweed is often used in growing butterfly and butterfly gardening. Milkweed has its own defences and it knows how to protect itself from caterpillars through its three distinct features: the hair on its leaves, its cardenolide toxins, and its latex fluids that all drives caterpillars away. This makes milkweed useful to other plants as well, as it repels pests, most particularly the wireworms. In the garden, the milkweed emits a very interesting fragrance; however, it can also be toxic that it causes dermatitis to someone who gets into contact with it.
