Identifying and Using Greens in Arrangements

The term 'greens' covers a wide selection of boughs from the evergreen family.  Some greens are truly a green in colour while others can have an undertone such as silver or a lime green.

Greens can also have natural embellishments such as small cones or berries.  Understanding the 'role' of each type of green will enable you to create an outstanding arrangement. Some greens are best suited as draping, others for filler or even strictly for decorative enhancement.
