"Learning about Foliage"

Posted by on

Foliage works better in large arrangements to fill out and shape the design, while sculptural grasses create interest and height. Other foliage, usually of year-round varieties, works better in small designs to give added detail and color. Ultimately, the foliage that you choose for an arrangement will depend on its seasonal or year-round availability.

Year-Round Foliage

With the exception of ruscus, year-round foliage tends to be short and so is best used for medium-sized and compact arrangements. Choose foliage such as pittosporum, bear grass, snake grass, leather leaf and black ti and green ti leaves. Salal, shown at the far left, is a dense filler best used for small designs and bouquets. The unusual silver-green leaves, pleasant scent and handsome arching stems of eucalyptus, beside it, enhance the shape of a design and add an extra flourish. The attractive feathery leaves on long curved stems of the next example, ruscus, add a delicate texture to a design.
