tips & tricks:

  • Thistle is hearty and will last 10-12 days in a vase if cared for properly
  • It drys extremely well so if you are looking to preserve it, you’re in luck!
  • This is beautiful but very prickly! If you’re using it in bouquets, corsages, or crowns make sure it is cushioned by softer foliage.
  • We love to use blue thistle as a filler in otherwise soft, delicate bouquets and arrangements
