The Good: We adore the sage color, and how whimsical it is to work with! It has a very Italian feel and provides great movement. Mixes well with all types of Eucalyptus and Dusty Miller.
The Bad: Olive leaves can be very dry and arid. Sometimes the leaves can appear twisted and gnarled, which is normal but not super easy to work with.
- Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.
- Remove leaves below waterline

Flower Moxie reserves the right to make changes or substitutions. All substitutions are only done as a last resort, and only when the reasons for doing so are reasonable and genuine. For example, if a flower becomes unavailable (off-crop), incorrect color, or not in good condition to grace a wedding function we will substitute a flower that has a similar color and price-point.
Acceptable Subs: Eucalyptus is always a great sub for Olive Branch!
