tips & tricks:

We love coxcomb for its incredible texture. Not only is this bloom fuzzy to the touch, but it also resembles a brain in the coolest way possible. Mix it in with traditional flowers such as roses to offset an otherwise standard bouquet or use it with other unique flowers to create a truly breath-taking arrangement. These are large so use them as focal flowers rather than filler.
