Queen Anne's Lace Stem, Russet

A closer look at Queen Anne's Lace

Bringing plants into the home isn’t all about flowers and leaves. This stem is based on the dried, autumn form of Queen Anne’s Lace, and will give your arrangements a completely different texture and more depth. This is also a stem you can choose if you want a sculptural piece to use on its own.

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 a stem like this, that takes the fuss out of foraging for the perfect one and is much sturdier than the real thing, is even better.

From real-life to life-like

You’ll usually find Daucus carota (or Queen Anne’s Lace) growing along country lanes in spring, when it turns them white with its frothy flowers. In autumn and winter when bare and covered in frost, it feels more architectural. Our life-like version has a realistically floppy head, and a wire inside that means you can bend each stem into a natural arrangement.

Materials

Sometimes natural materials are best, other times synthetic. For our life-like stems, it’s polyester that creates the most realistic look. Easy to dye, it’s vibrant and colourfast so your stem won’t fade. And it can be made matte or shiny to look exactly like the real thing.

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.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

With smaller designs we tend to use one of three couriers; the three that we think are the best. It means that we can get your order out to you sooner. You’ll receive an email from our delivery partner to confirm your delivery date within 24 hours of us dispatching the item (or items).

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. We offer a free returns service on accessories and all the details on what you need to do will be on your delivery note. Just make sure you keep hold of the packaging.
