6. Diosma or Calcynia $-$$
We have recently been branching out (no pun intended) into the world of filler flowers to really see whats out there. To be honest, in my previous work experience (Yes, Oprah) I didn't have to use these guys much so it's actually been surprisingly fun to explore some fresh cut varieties I hadn't ever really used before. Calcynia is one of my fnew avorites for just the right amount of texture in centerpieces or for a slightly desert boho rusticity in bouquets. A little bit can go a long way with this bloom. Available in pink and white.
7. Babies Breath $$
What can I say about babies breath? We all know it. We all still have a place in our hearts for it. For me this blooms has to be used in just the right way to make it work. Generally, babies breath is one of those that I only use on it's own in large scale proportions. Also, it's not as inexpensive as many people think so I often offer other options in terms of "filling things out" if that is the goal.
8. Astrantia $$
Another personal favorite is astrantia. What I love about this bloom is that it is the perfect bridge element to marry the recently popular wedding palette of marsala with blush and ivory. I find it can be a harsh transition for those colors to come together and I love using a filler flower like astrantia's mauve-y color to make that more seamless. They are available in mauve and white and have a slightly botanical texture to them.
9. Eupatorium $
Twelve years as a florist and I just discovered Eupatorium recently on a Holland direct list. I took a gamble on it because it was sooo inexpensive at the time and the rest is history. Now I order this white filler blooms fairly regularly. It feels very similar to queen annes lace but what I love most about it is that it looks almost like a field flower so it adds a really natural and foraged aesthetic to arrangements. It seems to be available year round.
10. Queen Anne's Lace. $-$$
Otherwise known as roadsidia (roadside - ia). Some florist humor for you there if you caught it. Anyway, this bloom is a staple in wedding work. Though it's delicate blooms can be fleeting it's well worth the effort to incorporate these blooms if your wanting an element of airy and delicate for centerpieces or bouquets. Available year round.
