Pros: The texture of these silvery-blue thistle provides an elegant, stylistic touch to any floral arrangements. Thistles are strong, durable flowers that work well for boutonnieres, bouquets and centerpieces. The texture balances out masculine with the feminine to create eye-catching, visual interest. Plus this bloom makes for an unexpected surprise.
Cons: For the most part, this flower is well-behaved. While these can occasionally shed white pollen they generally cause no problems at all. Buds can be very small throughout the season and it feels like all thistle, no bud.
- Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.
- Keep away from heat or sun to extend vase life.

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: Another textured element that works within your specific color palette.
