Myrtle has thick, dense foliage covering the entire length of each stem that is perfect for arrangements that need thick coverage. It can be used by itself or as a vertical filler, or it can be cut down for bouquets and corsages.

Tips from our floral experts
Myrtle's woody stems have a slight lemony scent when cut.
Remove any foliage that will be below the water line.
Cut stems and hydrate in cool water with a low sugar solution for 4-12 hours, then store in a cooler.
Check to make sure your stems have enough water and change the water every 24 hours.
Keep away from direct sunlight, drafts and excessive heat.
