Fiddleheads (Dicranopteris linearis)
This unusual looking tropical floral green is actually the new growth of a giant fern that grows in Hawaii. The ferns new growth uncurls from the center of the plant forming these Fiddle like heads. As the Fiddleheads develop they will transform into a long straight stick or branch. The ferns fronds grow horizontally from the brown stems.
Fiddle heads are available year round, there are two color forms available, burgundy (pictured) and green.
Fiddle Heads are a bit fragile. The top of the stems can snap off fairly easily so be careful when using them in your designs.
Vase life is usually 5 – 7 days
