Guide to Evergreens

There are so many types of evergreen. Whether you are looking for the dramatic whispy folds of a cedar tree, the elegant full blooms of Douglas Fir Swag, or the stiff blue-green needles of a Scotch Pine, we can help you find the perfect decorations for your home. The Holidays are upon us and there are evergreens all over the shop, in most arrangements, and the star of many of our homes as the Christmas Tree. And Bagoy’s creates elegant decorations, gifts, and so much more with all forms of Evergreen!

Do you know all the different types of evergreens out there? Bagoy’s is here to help you with this handy dandy Guide to Evergreens.

Evergreens to Add: Swags & Tree Additions

  • Cedar is a wispy evergreen added to arrangements for its amazing scent and medium green foliage. Its drooping branches make it excellent in garlands and swags. It has beautiful brown branches too which makes this a really pretty addition to your artificial tree. It scents up an artificial tree and brings it to life quite easily.
  • Douglas Fir is very symmetrical and has bluish-green needles. This is a very durable tree, but it does need to be watered regularly as it can try out. It has an amazing aroma too and is a great cut Christmas tree.
  • Noble Fir has short, evenly spaced out branches giving it a very elegant look. Noble Fir is added to many arrangements, wreaths, garlands, and swags. It has a great scent and graces many homes as the favorite Christmas tree of the season.
  • Juniper has feathery blue-green foliage with very tightly packed needles and typically has small blue berries too. Juniper berries and foliage are great enhancements to garlands, wreaths, and swags.

Trees We Like

  • Spruce trees come in a few varieties like Norway Spruce, White Spruce, and Blue Spruce. All three of these have short shining needles in common.
  • The Norway Spruce is most often used in wreaths and garlands because of its interesting texture.
  • White Spruce doesn’t have the best scent, but the curved needles are pretty.
  • Blue Spruce is used quite a bit because of its silver-blue needles.
  • Pine trees include Scotch Pine, Virginia Pine, and White Pine.
  • The White Pine tree has wispy branches with slender bluish-green needles. This is a very fragrant pine, but be careful as it oozes sap.
  • The Virginia Pine is also very fragrant and has oddly shaped needles that slightly twist – a great addition to swags and wreaths for a bit of texture.
  • Scotch Pine has short stiff bluish-green needles that are very dense. The Scotch Pine makes a great Christmas tree as it retains its needles longer than other pine trees.
