Winterberry is one of the most popular floral items during this time of the season. Here’s a tip well worth listening to, shared by our very own Teresa, that may save your holiday from becoming a disaster!
If you’re planning on using your winterberry as outside decor, be sure to purchase it DRY. A lot of our floral items are freshly cut, dipped in our floral solution, and placed in water. Which is a great way to preserve and keep our flowers looking fresh for a generous amount of time. Here at Stevens there are some items that we keep wet and dry.
But for the purpose of this article, and I can’t say this enough, if you plan on using your winterberry OUTSIDE, be sure to purchase it DRY. Once winterberry is cut and placed in water, if it is placed outside those beautiful vibrant red berries will freeze and quickly turn black. Ruining that fabulous Holiday red we all love about this wonderful plant.
Luckily, unlike most places, we sell our winterberry wet and dry! So be sure to keep in mind the type of environment your floral design will be hanging out at, that way, you are prepared to purchase the right kind of winterberry.
