Berries, Nuts & Pods, inc Scabiosa & Sea Holly

Featuring contemporary materials like berries, nuts, and pods is a definite trend in modern floral design. These visual embellishments add a contrast of textures, as well as depth of colour and interest, and their often neutral or singular colours allow them to be paired with a wide variety of palettes and blooms.  Fashionable in rustic or creative flower bouquets and centerpieces, popular varieties of berries, nuts, and pods include billy buttons, scabiosa, lotus pods, sea holly, gum nuts, peppercorns, and hypericum.
