We hunt everywhere for the perfect greenery and some of the best accent greenery is eucalyptus, cedar, magnolia, or pine. For my wreath at home I used magnolia and pine, and the magnolia I actually clipped in a Walmart parking lot! Find evergreens that are local to your area that you can clip locally.
My tricks to evergreen care are some easy steps you can follow. First, make sure you soak your green’s stems in a bucket of water at least overnight but preferably for 24 hours. Throughout the season, spray with a mist of water weekly or twice a week to keep fresh. The greenery can become “crispy” or dry throughout the season. Lastly, spray with green glo to give it a gorgeous shine and it will last much longer.
