Dusty Miller leaves are softer than other leaf varieties. I need to tape and add extra support of wires so that I can brace the leaves to stand up properly.
Feel free to use white corsage tape throughout the making of your boutonnieres. I grabbed green because it was handy!
See how the larger leaf wants to bend outward. I want this leaf to gently cup around the red rose.
I'm going to actually fold the leaf into place and then tape it to the boutonniere stem. The additional wire support will then be taped into place.
