Hot & In-Season: Filler Flowers?

Those fabulous plants loaded with blooms either up and down or clustered atop of each stem - like heather or waxflower are often referred to as 'filler flowers'.  But, are they really fillers, a kind of stuffing or space filler?  Absolutely not, they're one of the season's hottest harvests!

These awesome flowers add texture, bulk and style to bouquets and arrangements.  In addition, they compliment the color scheme, and add frilly or delicate textures to the mix.  And, there's so many wonderful varieties to choose from - saxicola, calycina, heather, boronia, sterling range, genista, eriostemon, waxflower and many more.  Here's just a few of our favorites! 

Calycina Thryptomene
