Green flowers to brighten your bouquets
When we think about flower colours, green is not usually the first to come to mind. This is because we usually add various types of foliage to our bouquets as opposed to green flowers. What many people don’t realize is the fact that there are several types of green blooms available and they can truly transform your flower arrangements.
If you want to add green flowers with a twist, you should use amaranths. These blooms hang down rather than standing upright like most flowers. They are rich in texture too which makes them excellent as filler flowers. If you want to grow this plant, you should try showing them off in hanging baskets.
