Flower spotlight: wax flower

Despite their name, the filler wax flower is not anything like those annoying little drips that get stuck to the counter when your candle melts just a little too much. Wax flowers are commonly used as floral fillers due to their petite size, but they can be visually impactful all on their own as well. Ranging in color from white, ivory, orange, yellow, light and dark pinks, purples, and reds, and even bicolor, these tiny blooms pack a punch and look great in almost anything!

Spider mums are hardy perennials with thick round stalks topped with long, narrow petals.
