In today’s blog post, we’re shining a spotlight on the unique fiddlehead fern!  Fiddleheads have a branch-like stem with a curly tip that spirals at the end. Fiddlehead is available year-round and comes in a range of green and purple hues. With its one-of-a-kind shape and beautiful color, it can easily add dimension and texture to any arrangement. It especially pairs well with rich, fall colors but also looks stunning mixed in with a ton of greenery. Adding a few stems of fiddleheads can easily transform your arrangements into a woodland fairytale. With little maintenance required, fiddleheads are easy to care for and can last up to eight days!
