Paper Asters and Paper Mums
A visual guide to beautiful paper flowers
Asters are the cool cousins of the chrysanthemums. Cool because they only come in cool tones--their gene pool isn't as widely sought at as the mums, which have legions more fans and breeding. Perennials, they are a herald of the autumnal season, appearing in late summer after long days and shorter nights begin. These asters make any fall arrangement complete. There is a complete supply list in the aster section.
Mums come in many more colors and have wonderful shapes in the heirloom varieties!
The supplies for the paper mums shown below will be sold in a kit through Rose Mille.
