- Stems are branchy and can be separated to get the most out of each one.

Specific Flower Care
- Baby’s breath may arrive with some broken stems – this is normal due to the nature of variety.
- The stems tend to get a bit compacted upon shipping, take the bunch outside and gently shake/tease apart the blooms.
- Gently separate stems and clip off any bent branches to use for boutonnieres, corsages, or small vase arrangements!
- Optional: Use Quick Dip (a floral product, sold at Michaels/Amazon) to briefly submerge your stems in upon arrival to encourage blossoms to open for an even fuller look.
- Baby’s breath has a strong fragrance that can be unpleasant (to some people) in large quantities. Avoid using in masses on dinner tables if you’re a scent sensitive person!
- Baby’s breath can be manipulated and trimmed/sculpted to create round forms for pomanders and topiary-style arrangements.
- Very well suited for installation work, baby’s breath can be kept out of water for long periods – perfect for archways, pew markers, garlands, and other decor.
