Have You Considered Permanent Botanicals for Your Home?

Nothing can compare to the beauty of fresh flowers. Exciting new cultivars and improved vase life provide a wealth of choices for lovers of nature. But for someone who is allergic to pollen, loves varieties that are not in season, or wants a bright spot of color to last indefinitely, permanent botanicals are a perfect choice.

To have realistic and lifelike flowers and foliages means buying the best in the industry. Stella Skolnik, owner of Skip’s Toms River Flowers, buys permanent flowers by the stem, “And they are sometimes 3 times as expensive as their real counterpart,” she explains. Obviously we stay away from the types you see in discount stores; the garish colors and cheap quality. Silk Flowers lend themselves to design styles that are used in fresh arrangements. For example, an oriental inspired design may feature sophisticated Dendrobium Orchids with their curvy roots, punctuated by mixed foliages like staghorn fern, lily grass and Spanish moss.

A linear arrangement may get its panache from lush Cymbidium Orchids, natural lotus pods, and Ti leaves. Tropicals, like Ginger, Anthiriums, Birds of Paradise and Pin Cushion Proteas give a license to disregard conventional design and color scheme. Bending and twisting at unnatural angles gives these blooms an artistic flair impossible with fresh exotics.

Wildflower and opulent English Garden-style arrangements use Larkspur, Iris, Roses, Peonies, English Ivy, Astromeria, English Ivy, Creeping Charlie and grass foliages that need to be touched to make certain they are not real. Stella says, “We have Peonies and Roses on display and I always see people leaning in to smell them.”
