Hello and welcome to Floral Friday! Today I am talking about the beautiful green flower viburnum.

viburnum_snowballI continually get brides that confuse hydrangea and viburnum, they do look very much alike. Hydrangea has a much larger head and has larger leaves. Viburnum ( in the fresh cut industry) comes only in green, hydrangea comes in a multitude of colors.

Viburnum’s season starts in January and goes through spring. It’s on the expensive side but it doesn’t take much to add beauty to any arrangement. It’s a flower with woody stems so I was taught to smash the ends of the stem after cutting to ensure that the flower drinks properly.
