A closer look at Skimmia

Our life-like Skimmia stem has a loose, branching cluster (called a panicle) of tightly balled, pale-green buds as its tip, so it acts as both foliage and flower. And, with leaves that are matte mid-green on top and glossy, brighter green on the reverse, you get three green tones in one.

Why life-like?

Having foliage and flowers in your home makes such a difference – they’re one of those final touches that helps it feel more lived in. And stems that look as good on Friday as they did on Monday are even better – no water to change, nothing to trim, no mess, no fuss.

From real-life to life-like

Although evergreen, the buds on skimmia appear in autumn and winter. But, it adds so much body and interest that we think you can take a little artistic licence and use it all year round. So it’s as true to life as possible, the head droops a little, and there’s a wire inside so you can shape each stem individually.

  • Diameter :19cm
  • Height :88cm
  • Weight :0.09kg
  • Real feel petals :No
  • Composition :40% Polyester, 40% Plastic, 20% Wire

Just so you know

The wire in the stem is tough so you can’t accidentally snap it. But you’ll need something powerful if you want to trim it down. We’ve found long-handled loppers (the ones for pruning shrubs and trees) or wire cutters do the trick.

The wire inside also means you can’t put your stem in water for long or it’ll rust. So if you’re arranging it with real flowers, bend the life-like stem up out of the water.

Care guide

Look after your life-like stem with just a quick weekly dust. Use a clean feather duster or a wipe.
