The Good: Y'all the owner is from Oklahoma, need we say more? But seriously, we love putting a sprig of wheat into a bout accompanied with a Billy Ball. We get so into it and start wailing "AND THE WAVING WHEAT, IT SURE SMELLS SWEET WITH THE WIND COMES RIGHT BEHIND THE RAIIIIINNNNN". Sorry.
The Bad: Not much, it's hardy. The tall whisps can be too tall, but easy to trim with scissors.
- Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.

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: Possibly bunny tail grass. We will choose a sub based on your overall design and color palette.
