Buy preserved foliage bunches of ruscus also known as butchers broom leaves. Each bunch consists of approx ten stems, about 55cm long. Wholesale packs. This is a bunch of real leaves on stems, not artificial. This preserved foliage is made by treating the fresh stems and leaves with glycerin, and a colourant, leaving them more supple than traditional drying methods. The ivory colour of the leaves makes an unusual foil for pale arrangements and dried flower bouquets. Bulk packs of ten or twenty bunches, RRP £15 to £20 per bunch.
May not be colourfast in damp conditions. These bunches are often packed flat in transit.
