Check flowers very carefully, making sure they are not turning brown, that the colors are bright, that the eyes are clear. Often the white flowers will be blotched with pink but this is normal. Flowers are displaced on terminal panicles at the end of the stem as well as in racemes amongst the soft foliage. Sterling Range, or Chamaelaucium cilliatum is extremely sensitive to ethylene so look out for flower drop. Stems should be cut and the flowers hydrated in a low sugar holding solution. These flowers should preferably be processed in a cool room of 45-50 F with low humidity and held at this temperature, as they are sensitive to low temperatures.
