Synergistic Design

NGC Handbook For Flower Shows 2007 p. 210

  1. A Creative Design of three or more units. If organized in containers, a minimum of two-thirds must contain plant material and (optional) other components.
  2. Balance, rhythm and harmony may be achieved through all units sharing common characteristics of colors, textures, and forms.
  3. Design may be further unified through use of a connective/s.
  4. The individual units (containers) should not appear as completed designs in themselves, but when all units are combined they create a complete and artistic whole, for the definition of "Synergism" is "The act of two or more units necessary to achieve an effect of which each is individually incapable".
