tips & tricks:

  • These dry really nicely as they hold their shape/color when dried
  • Due to the rigid stems of limonium, they make an excellent filler flower. Each stem has many small, but strong, branches to fill in blank spaces in arrangements and support more delicate flowers surrounding them
  • We love limonium in flower crowns to give a subtle hint of color to the surround foliage
  • As limonium dries, it can make a big mess! The tiny purple leaves become delicate as the flower dies and they will fall from the branch if bumped of jostled.
