Acacia (Mimosa)

Little fuzzy yellow balls on a stem…fun!

Acacia seems to be used less often than other flower varieties. What do you think? Would you use it in an arrangement or bouquet?

I'm surprised you are taking up the cause for the acacia flower. It seems like one of those fillers (read: baby's breath) you so loath. Maybe that's why it is underused? Baby's breath and greenery is cheaper that acacia for filling out an arrangement? I don't know...I think I'd rather have berries.

I've never even seen that or noticed it in all my blog reading. Thanks for the introduction.
