Buy preserved foliage bunch - a great filler for dried flower arrangements. These natural stems and leaves have been dyed green. Each very large bunch consists of 5 or more branched stems, up to about 90cm long - a substantial handful of branches. This is a bunch of real foliage, not artificial. Leaf size is typically 2 to 3 cm long. This preserved foliage is made by treating the fresh stems and leaves with preservative, such as naturally occurring glycerin, and a colourant. The dried leaves have been dyed mid green through dark moss green. Exact shade may vary as can be seen in images. A very big bunch for your money - we weighed a bunch and it was nearly a kilo! Botanical information - this plant is a relative of holly / ilex - it is not the very spiky Ilex aquifolium, but does still have a few! It is an evergreen with robust leaves which are darker and glossier on the top surface. RRP for such a large bunch would be £20+.
This preserved foliage may not be colourfast in damp conditions. These substantial bunches are often packed flat in transit.
A note about dyed items: There may be a residual chemical smell which some people find unappealing. Most people are not aware of a smell and we find that any remaining scent often disperses after a few days out of the packaging. If you think you might be sensitive to the fragrance of dyed items, we recommend you stick to our wide range of natural dried flowers and natural grasses.
