The standard greenery and fillers are replaces with some very specific holiday greens. And with the holiday season kicking off in just a few weeks, it’s definitely time to think about the kinds of arrangements you want to create.

The needles on the Balsam Fir are about 1-1/2 inches long and are dark green. The branches are gracefully curved and create a rich background for any holiday flower arrangement. One of the most aromatic of all the evergreens, it’s a perfect choice for using with holiday flowers that have little or no scent.

When using evergreens in your holiday arrangements, remember to make them low and long rather than tall to make the most of the evergreen branches natural beauty.
