Wed­ding flow­ers that are hardy, af­ford­able, and al­ways beau­ti­ful: The win goes to zin­nias.

a fresh look

“Zin­nias are thought of as a hum­ble flower,” says flo­ral de­signer Ariella Chezar, who grew the blooms on these pages in her fields at Zon­n­eveld Farm, in up­state New York. “But they have so much pos­si­bil­ity, and there are so many cool va­ri­eties.” Here, she’s ar­ranged red-and-white ‘Mazurkia’; tall peach ‘Zin­derella’; and peach, orange, and pink scabiosa in gray porce­lain vases by Mud Aus­tralia (from $60 each, mu­daus­tralia.com). The neu­tral ves­sels set off the flow­ers’ bold hues, and a love-in-a-puff vine wind­ing through the ar­range­ments adds ro­mance.
