Care of the Magnolia Wreath

Magnolia Wreath

The magnolia has been a symbol of southern hospitality since the 18th century. This wreath is hand-crafted with stems from cultivated trees. The leaves are known for their glossy, dark-green front side and coppery back side. In time, the leaves will dry and the wreath can be used for many seasons.

To extend the life of the wreath, hang it out of direct sunlight and moisture. When not being used, store the wreath in a cool, dry place in the box provided. Do not store it in a plastic bag.

Drying time: If displayed indoors, where temperatures are 75 to 78 degrees F., the wreath will dry in seven to 10 days. If displayed outdoors (50 to 70 degrees F.) the wreath will dry in three to four weeks.

Color: If kept in direct sunlight, the wreath will dry to a rust color. If kept indoors, the wreath will dry to light green.
