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.
One way you can ensure your stephanotis is really fresh is to buy it from a local source, such as Peterkort Roses. If you are a Pacific Northwest florist, our local product is available to you. Give us a call to check availability at (503) 628-1005.
