The story of Salal

Salal, popularly called Apple Leaf or the Latin name is Gaultheria shallon, can be recognized by its egg-shaped green leaves with a serrated side.

Origin?

Salal comes from the West coast of the USA, especially from the states of Oregon and Washington, and from Canada, BC. Salal also grows even further south, towards Northern California, but that product is not hard enough due to the weather conditions. The leaves have a light(er) color in some areas. In other areas, the foliage is a glossy dark green.

Where does Salal grow?

Salal grows in the wild and can be found in the extensive forests. Pickers pluck the Salal in the forest and then transport it to the „inhabited“ world. There it is processed and transported in boxes.

From field to bouquet

The Salal season starts around the 2nd week of July. Salal is then flown to us as the product is not yet hard enough to be shipped by boat. Later in the season, Salal will go on rail transport, which means that the container in Vancouver will be taken by train to Montreal. There it is transferred to a ship and comes to us. As soon as the nights have turned colder and the first night frost is a fact, Salal is hard enough to be on the road longer. And then the product comes to us on the boat, via the Panama Canal.

Green Inspiration with Salal

The branches of Salal or Apple Leaf are very popular for flower arranging because of the beautiful, matte and dark green color and firmness!

Processing tip: what strengthens each other? That you create contrasts in a bouquet, so thin / thick, elongated / round, everything that is opposite. There are so many different varieties, so with green that always works!
