A closer look at Laurel

Of all our leafy foliage stems, our life-like Laurel is the simplest and the darkest green, which will contrast with flowers to make them stand out more. It’s based on the leaves of the bay tree, Laurus nobilis, so it’s also a good stem to choose if you’re looking to add greenery to your kitchen.

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 dead-heading, no mess, no fuss. And no wilting.

From real-life to life-like

The gardening world uses the name ‘laurel’ quite freely. You could be talking about the bay tree, or plants like the cherry laurel and the Portugal laurel. With its leathery, slightly shiny leaves, ours is most like a bay plant. Each leaf is hand-painted, so no two are quite the same, and it has a wire inside that lets you bend it into a realistic position.

  • Diameter :21cm
  • Height :88cm
  • Weight :0.03kg
  • 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.
