Types of Greenery Fillers for Flower Arrangements


Greenery can be an important addition to floral arrangements and bouquets. One way greenery is effective in arrangements is to cover its mechanics. For example, you can use greenery or foliage to cover foam. Greenery also makes an arrangement or bouquet appear fuller. Using foliage rather than expensive flowers can lower an arrangement's cost. It also can add a green color contrast to the arrangement.

Baker's Leaf

  • Baker's leaf is one of the most commonly used types of greenery fillers and it is often employed to cover foam bases in arrangements. It also creates volume. It is a hardy type of foliage and can remain fresh-looking for a long time.

Lamb's Ear

  • Lamb's ear can be a frosted green color or green edged in white. It is often used in bridal bouquets. As its name suggests, lamb's ear leaves resemble lambs' ears and are very soft to the touch.

Birds Nest Fern

  • Birds nest fern often appears in tropical bouquets or arrangements. Its foliage is very large and has wavy sides. Birds nest ferns can be a striking addition to a floral arrangement.

Cordyline Leaf

  • Cordyline leaves are deep green, long, straight and waxy. They are extremely durable, so they are often folded when used in bouquets and arrangements. The sides of the leaf are red.

Song Leaf

  • These leaves are long, straight and spiky. They are often used in either floral arrangements or bouquets. A nice thing about song leaves is that their stems are hard and strong, so they are easy to work with.
