With countless varieties and colors of hydrangeas available, you can work with us to create a look you absolutely love.If you’re still thinking Baby’s Breath is the way to go, consider the potential impact on the environment during your special event. Gypsophila is considered an invasive plant species in British Columbia (you may want to check this for Canada in General as I found an article about it being invasive in Sask and Alberta too)– an invasive herbaceous perennial plant that takes over grazing land and out-competes the native and introduced perennial grasses. Baby’s breath that mixes with hay reduces the protein value of the crop, making it less valuable for livestock and wildlife forage. What many might not consider is that the seeds often continue to develop in floral arrangements, spreading easily as you enjoy the local landscape during your special day or event. Get this: a single plant can produce more than 10,000 seeds, and with the help of even a slight breeze, can travel quite a distance. We hope this have given you some great ideas! Looking beyond the common Baby’s Breath, to other incredible flower options, so as to enjoy whimsical and beautiful arrangements that make an impact and are also cost effective.
