Salal leaves is a favorite greenery of mine! The beautiful broad leaves are perfect for corsage and boutonniere work, adding a lot of interest to the design.
A single grower's bunch is pretty generous, as you see below. One or two bunches is usually plenty to accent an average wedding's bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres. You may need more if you plan on large church displays or a lot of reception centerpieces.
The single leaves are a rounded, perfect shape with sturdy stems that insert well into florist foam.
I begin adding them as accents to the design that already has the leather leaf fern inserted.
Push the stems firmly into the foam, working it deep enough to hold securely.
A few leaves quickly add a lot of different color and texture to the greened bouquet.
