An enchanted chat to the guy at Buds & Bowers ended in my buying these amazing branches (related to the eucalyptus tree). Their leaves are powdery grey and their little gumnuts and branches look as though they have been dipped in white paint. I didn't have a tall enough vase for them so they eneded up in a silver topped wine decanter. I loved that they were wrapped in grey paper to match their chalky grey leaves. This is not your average florist...other unique 'flowers' on display were cows udders, pink peppercorns, okra branches and echinacea.
