Some flowers are team players, content to let their gently expressive hues and textures take a supporting role in an arrangement or bouquet. Others have a domineering, outgoing nature and always insist on being the center of attention. Recognizing flowers' differing personalities-and blending the meek and the bold together in unusual, romantic, and harmonious ways-is at the heart of Lucinda Rooney's floral philosophy. 
In Bouquets with Personality, Rooney divulges her secrets: the materials and tools she's most fond of using, her design influences, her theory of color, and, most important, her insightful "psychology" of the botanical realm.
