White anemones are perfect for black and white themed weddings. These are available only from early autumn through late spring.”
Pink statice holds its brilliant color perfectly after it is dried. It’s great for circumstances where water source is an issue.”
Blue thistle flower adds a cool, funky texture. It’s excellent for Scottish weddings.”
Scabiosa pods are fun to use in rustic, country-chic inspired bouquets. Availability is limited mainly to autumn and winter months.”
Purple German statice is a delicate accent where a unique purple texture is required.”
Berzillia foliage is a soft light green foliage that lends a feathery accent. Its wispy texture is great for wildflower inspired bouquets.”
Silver brunia is a wonderful neutral colored modern accent to non-traditional bouquets. The silver berries make vibrant colors pop.”
Pink waxflower has a fresh soap-scented fragrance and is a
nice filler for a bouquet of tulips
and roses.”
