Being a florist comes with many challenges, joys, an creativity. I love creating floral designs mainly because I am obsessed with flowers and plants. But, also, I love the designing process. One of my favorite greens to work with is Italian Ruscus. It creates such a great flowy and organic shape to floral centerpieces.Italian Ruscus is a great green for making wreaths because it is sturdy, flexible and full. It looks great in a small wreath on a wedding day table setting or as a larger wreath in your wedding day decor.From your wedding day centerpiece to your bridal bouquet, italian ruscus can add the perfect amount of green and airiness to the arrangement.
The stems are quite long so when we add them into our wedding day centerpieces, we can create long and flowing legs on either side. I love working with this green!Like other greens that you would see in a greenery swag, italian ruscus is completely versatile. This plant can handle extreme conditions and will look good all day long. Clump it together in a runner or let it be free to give your arrangements some organic flow!A great way to add a touch of color to your wedding day cake while not breaking the bank, use italian ruscus! Little pieces of this beauty go a long way.In the Rocky Mountains of Beaver Creek, Colorado, we have to use flowers and greens that can withstand some extreme weather. We love using italian ruscus in our wedding day centerpieces, bridal bouquets, and boutonnières. Let this organic shaped greenery grace your wedding day! Happy Earth Day!
