shrubs for flower arrangements

farmeranne(5a)July 17, 2012

Hello, I am planning to plant a "florist's hedge" using shrubs that have nice foliage- variegation, deep color, interesting leaf shape. etc. Does anyone know if Ivory Halo Dogwood and Gold Lace Juniper are good candidates for floral arrangements? I am specifically wondering if the variegation on the dogwood stays nice looking or if it is susceptible to leaf scorch. And can you suggest any others? Thanks in advance!

How about butterfly bush?

Although not in a bouquet, I have often used juniper in arrangements set in wet floral foam and it has exceptional staying power.

Diabolo Ninebark foliage is very nice in bouquets and will outlast any flowers. Specifically the new growth is nicest. No special treatment required for the stems.
