About half the size of a dime, Forget-Me-Nots can be grouped on cake tops or used to accent smaller treats like petits fours. They grow naturally in blue, pink and white.

The vibrant pansy features petals in complementary colors and a distinctive loop center. Pansies can be found in a wide variety of colors, including all yellow or all dark blue, white or purple petals with yellow centers.

This 5-petal springtime flower, most commonly seen in white or soft pink, is virtually the same petal shape as the wild rose, but uses a smaller tip creating a petite flower. The dot stamen are typically positioned like the holes in a 5-hole button. Dry them on flower formers for a more natural look.
