tips & tricks:
This is one of our absolute favorite filler flowers. These do a great job filling out an arrangement without adding too much heavy foliage. Not only do these flowers play well with friends, but they also have enough oomph to stand alone in a bouquet or arrangement. Did we mention these are gorgeous on flower crowns or in corsages and boutonnieres?
