Eucalyptus is a genus of over 700 species of trees and shrubs native to Australia and nearby islands. Most eucalyptus species are native to Australia, with a minimal number native to islands in the Pacific and Indian Oceans. They are commonly known as gum trees or eucalypts. Eucalyptus is one of the world's most widely cultivated tree genera, and its range has expanded to include many other countries.
The name "eucalyptus" comes from the Greek words "eu," meaning "well," and "kaluptos," meaning "covered," referring to the cap that covers the flowers of the tree. The meaning behind the name refers to the flower buds, which are covered by a protective cap known as operculum that falls off as the flowers bloom.
Eucalyptus has been an essential plant for Indigenous Australians for thousands of years, who used it for medicine, food, and tools. Eucalyptus is widely used for its oil, extracted from the leaves, and used in various products, including cleaning supplies, personal care products, and even some medications. The wood of the eucalyptus is also used for construction, paper production, and charcoal production.
WHY DO FLORISTS LOVE IT?
Florists love silk eucalyptus because it offers many of the same benefits as fresh eucalyptus but with added convenience and versatility.
-One of the main advantages of silk eucalyptus is that it is always in season and readily available, unlike fresh eucalyptus, which may be seasonal or harder to find in certain areas. This means florists can use it in their designs year-round without worrying about availability.
-Silk eucalyptus also has a longer lifespan than fresh eucalyptus, as it does not require water or maintenance and will not wilt or die. This makes it an excellent option for long-term displays or uses in arrangements that will be transported or shipped.
-Silk eucalyptus also offers more flexibility regarding the colors and finishes available. This can be beneficial for florists who want to create a specific look or color scheme, as they can find a silk eucalyptus that will match their desired aesthetic.
-Silk eucalyptus also offers a cost-effective alternative to fresh eucalyptus, as it can be bought in bulk and reused multiple times, reducing the overall cost of floral arrangements.
Overall, silk eucalyptus is a great option for florists as it offers the same attractive silver-blue foliage and long-lasting nature as fresh eucalyptus but with added convenience, versatility, and cost-effectiveness.
