What Are Line Flowers?
Line flowers make up one of the four main flower types – with the remaining three being mass, form, and filler flowers. Line flowers are pretty tall and usually have buds blooming along their stems. They are a fantastic tool when it comes to enhancing dimension in any arrangement!
Line flowers are also used to add height and width to a floral design. They help to create a sense of proportion and define the overall shape of a design.
As the name suggests – line flowers create a line that serves as a guide for floral arranging and a path for the eye to follow.
