Sunflower and Heuchera Centerpiece

The Garden Home Retreat's signature flower is the sunflower in September. After several months of growing taller and taller the blooms burst open right around the first of the month. They are beautiful both in the garden and as cut flowers.

This sunflower centerpiece has a twist. I paired it with one of my favorite perennials, Dolce® Key Lime Pie heuchera. The color combination of bright yellow and chartreuse is just right for early fall celebrations. After the party is over I will plant the heuchera in the garden.
