tips & tricks:
- These berries are almost always available but in the fall and winter months, they add a ton of charm to wreaths and holiday-centric centerpieces.
- Another of our favorite fillers, try these in a bouquet with bright, heavily textured flowers for a bit of visual relief (we love them next to dahlias and ranunculus).
- Don’t eat these! They are poisonous!
- Hypericum berries have hearty stems with round leaves. If you’re looking for supportive filler, these are your guys!
