The Good: We are all about the texture and the silvery-blue color thistle provides! Thistle is a strong, manly flower that works great in boutonnieres, but also in bouquets and centerpieces. The texture balances out masculine with the feminine to create visual interest. Plus, it's an unexpected surprise!

The Bad:  Nothing bad to say, it's very hardy and durable. Can shed white pollen occasionally, but not too fussy.

  • Give the stems a fresh cut, and place in cool water.
  • Keep away from heat or sun to extend vase life.
  • Remove leaves below waterline

Thistle is a 'Texture Flower'. Based on our design suggestions here's our quantity recommendations:

  • Bridal Bouquet: 1/3 bunch

  • Centerpieces: 1/4 bunch
  • Large Arrangements: 1-2 bunches

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.
