The four flower design classifications are line, form, mass, and filler. Each classification serves a different purpose in flower arrangements, and understanding the purpose of each can help you create beautiful, eye-catching floral designs.
Line flowers are long-stemmed and are used to create a line or a curve in the design. Examples of line flowers include snapdragons, larkspur, delphinium, and sweet william.
Form flowers are used to create structure and form in the design. These flowers have a large head and short stem, and are often used as the focal point of the design. Examples of form flowers include roses, dahlias, and lilies.
Mass flowers are used to create a full, lush look in the design. These flowers have multiple blooms on each stem and are used to create a large mass of color. Examples of mass flowers include hydrangeas, daisies, and carnations.
Finally, filler flowers are used to fill in any gaps in the design. These flowers are often small and have multiple blooms on each stem. Examples of filler flowers include baby’s breath, statice, and waxflower.
Understanding the purpose of each of the four flower design classifications can help you create beautiful, eye-catching floral designs. By combining line, form, mass, and filler flowers, you can create stunning arrangements that will be sure to impress!
