Let's take a moment and define what makes a fabulous filler. If focal flowers are all about being the star, then fillers are the supporting cast. They should protect, surround, and enhance the focal flower in a bouquet. The best fillers are bulky without being unwieldy, and most importantly, prolific. Nothing is better than a small patch of plants filling buckets for weeks on end. Here’s a list of my favorite fillers throughout the growing season. The months I list them for when they are ready on my 6B zone farm in the Salt Lake Valley, where our average last frost date is in mid-May. For the sake of simplicity, I am listing foliage and flowering fillers.
