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.
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 matt or shiny to look exactly like the real thing. All the stems are wired internally as well, which means you can easily bend them into a natural position.
An idea or two
Big and exuberant dahlias will always be the stars of any arrangement you put them in, so we’d recommend complementing this one with a subtler bloom like our white ranuncula, agapanthus or pink-tinged anemone, and then adding greenery and more texture through something like our Sea Arrowgrass stem or even our Artichoke bunch – as well as plenty of foliage of course.

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.
