What’s with all the Fuss about Eucalyptus Leaves?
Also known as ‘Gum leaves’, there are over 700 species of Eucalyptus, and most of them are native to Australia. With their huge variety and their distinct waxy leaves, they have become very popular with florists in recent time; particularly in Native Australian Floral Arrangements, but also paired with other ‘classic’ flowers such as roses or gerberas to give these arrangements a more modern, unique look.
What are Our Artificial Eucalyptus leaves Made of?
Our Artificial Eucalyptus leaves come in a variety of materials, depending on the specific item. Most of our products are made of Fabric, wire, and plastic, though some, such as our high quality “33cm Silver Dollar Eucalyptus Single Stem Bouquet” is wire and latex. Wire stems ensure our artificial Eucalyptus Leaf stems are flexible and easily manipulated so you can arrange them to sit exactly the way you want them to, and a combination of fabric and plastic not only allows for strength but also adds an aspect of realism. A tip when browsing through our Artificial Eucalyptus products… check out the quality of each product on their product page. We range from budget fillers to high-quality, real-touch products so that every need and budget is catered for.
Tips to keep your Artificial Eucalyptus Leaves looking their best…
Fake Leaves are much easier to look after than the real deal, but there are still some useful tips you can employ to ensure they can look their best well into the future…
- Due to transportation, your leaves may need to be re-arranged and straightened out. The beauty of artificial flowers is that the stems won’t snap and bruise if you bend and manipulate them into the perfect position!
- Weekly dusting will ensure your Gum Leaves will look pretty and bright. Use a microfibre cloth, a hairdryer set to low heat, or even a vacuum cleaner set to its lowest setting, with a stocking secured over it by a rubber band.
- Salt is such an incredible preserver that it can even preserve Artificial Flowers and Leaves! Shake your leaves in a resealable bag of coarse salt, and let the salt gently scratch through and loosen any grime and dust coating your leaves. Cornmeal can be used as an alternative to salt if no salt is available.
- Silk Flower Cleaning Sprays are effective and easy (no wiping required), but also generally expensive.
