All About Stephanotis
August 8, 2009
News PictureStephanotis is a favorite flower for weddings, but sometimes mysterious. It smells and looks divine, but sometimes it susceptible to problems for the florist trying to work with it and not have brown spots, wilting, etc.

Leanne Kesler of the Floral Design Institute has put this helpful video on You Tube which covers in a brief five minutes the fine points of working with stephanotis.

She goes over hydration, sealing with Crowning Glory, using self-made centers or purchased centers, and decorating with pearls or jewels.

If you are unfamiliar with this flower or it's been a while since you've worked with it, give this helpful video a quick view.

Leanne has other videos too, on her You Tube channel.
