“The Good Lord brought us lots of rain lately and there’s lots of lichen on the trees. Did you know you can eat that stuff? I guess if you were really desperate. I won’t be addin’ it to my recipes anytime soon,” Gramma Kakie
It’s true, most lichens are edible but it takes some work to make them palatable. The collections of lichen branches and twigs are sold for decorative use only, and are dried but not sealed. They are wonderful for rustic woodland décor in wreaths, arrangements, table scatter, fairy gardens, terrariums, and anything else you can imagine for them.
The colors are so pretty, and some of the branches even have some tiny ball moss babies attached. Most of the branches are oak but there might be a hickory or two in there. These are somewhat fragile, so handle with care. The longest twigs are around 9 inches. You will receive a collection pictured similar to the one pictured.
