The Overlooked Staple

Often times green foliage gets forgotten when it is outshone by its flashy counter part the flower. However, this should not be the case. Green foliage aka “greens” or “greenery” is often the building block to any good arrangement. The benefits of using greenery is that it can add structure, texture, and contrast. From rich emeralds to cool gray-blues, foliage is able to transform a ordinary bouquet into something extraordinary. Below are just a few of my favorite greens that I enjoy using.
