Dried Preserved Red Eucalyptus, CinereaRegular price £23.00
This stunning preserved eucalyptus has deep crimson leaves, and comes in two varietals. Eucalyptus Cinerea is the more recognisable having round leaves, and Eucalyptus Nicoly has long, slim leaves. Either would be absolutely beautiful in a seasonal display, and the supple texture makes these stems perfect for wreath work.
Preserved eucalyptus can last for years when stored correctly. It is as supple as fresh eucalyptus and still has a strong scent. Half of any plants weight is water, so the preserving technique replaces the water with a chemical humectant, most commonly glycerine. Try to avoid sudden temperature and humidity changes which may cause 'sweating', as the glycerine used in preserving cannot evaporate as quickly as water. The dyes used may not be colourfast, so avoid placing on surfaces that could be damaged. Do not clean stems with water, just lightly dust. Length - Cinerea 50 - 60 cms ``Nicoly 60 - 70 cms Our price is per bunch, 7 stems in each.
