All About Statice Flowers

In the world of DIY events and parties, statice flowers emerge as an exquisite choice, adding a touch of elegance and versatility to floral arrangements. In this comprehensive guide, we'll delve into the art of using statice flowers, covering care tips, their role in centerpieces, flower bars, and bouquets. Discover the unique characteristics of statice, explore Moxie Blooms' tutorials, and find inspiration for creating unforgettable events featuring statice flowers as a beautiful and sophisticated filler.

Understanding Statice Flowers

Statice is a perennial flower celebrated for its papery blooms and diverse range of colors. With a delicate appearance and long-lasting nature, statice has become a favored choice for DIY floral enthusiasts.  Fresh Statice flowers can feel dry or crunchy to the touch with fluffy, papery blooms. The stem has many branches that are full of flowers.

Statice Flowers have a long vase life and will often outlast other blooms in arrangements. They’re also very easy to work with since they have a sturdy stem and don’t require much prep work. Simply trim the bottom of the stem and remove any leaves that will fall below the waterline in your vase. We recommend adding a DIY flower food packet to your arrangement as well.

Statice flowers possess unique characteristics that make them a versatile and enchanting choice for floral designs:

  • Papery Texture: Statice flowers are renowned for their papery texture, adding a unique visual and tactile element to floral arrangements.
  • Vibrant Colors: Statice comes in a variety of colors, including shades of indigo and white, offering a wide palette for creative floral design.
  • Longevity: Statice flowers have a remarkable staying power, making them an ideal choice for events where long-lasting blooms are desired.

Caring for Cut Statice Flowers

Ensuring the longevity of cut statice flowers is crucial for DIY enthusiasts aiming to showcase their vibrant beauty. Follow these steps for optimal care:

  • Fresh Cut: Trim statice stems at a 45-degree angle immediately upon receipt or cutting to facilitate water absorption.
  • Clean Water: Place statice flowers in a clean vase filled with lukewarm water. Change the water every two days to maintain freshness.
  • Avoid Submerged Foliage: Remove any submerged foliage to prevent bacterial growth and maintain a clean water environment.
  • Cool Environment: Keep statice flowers in a cool spot away from direct sunlight and drafts to prolong their vase life.
