We designed these brass frogs to fit our new Ikebana vases, although they also work with other vases and containers including simple Mason jars. Throw out the non-biodegradable floral foam and add frogs to give all kinds of displays stability.
Use the frog with the large single opening to help propagate your favorite cutting or to force a bulb or a branch to bloom (learn how-to in our journal article). Use the version with 3 openings to create simple Ikebana statements or to accommodate thicker stemmed species. Use the frog with the multiple openings to arrange flowers and botanicals.
We prefer the natural beauty of letting brass age gracefully and do not apply a lacquer finish to these. To maintain a shiny finish, wash with soapy water and use a tried and true brass cleaner like Brasso, Barkeeper's Friend or Wrights Brass Polish, likely available at your local hardware store. The natural (Bloomist preferred) approach is to combine the juice of half a lemon with a teaspoon of baking soda and stir until it becomes a paste. Apply the paste with a soft cloth. If the tarnish is heavy, let the piece sit with the paste on it for 30 minutes. Rinse with warm water and dry. Repeat if necessary.
Fits our Ikebana, Kado, and Buranchi vases.

Brass frogs - elevated my arrangement game!
I am so happy with this purchase. Everything in my Bloomist order is lovely, and the frogs are high quality and a pleasure to use. My arrangements already look better!
The Brass Frog was a perfect size and helped display flowers beautifully.
Beautiful products & quality service!
Perfect size for what I was needing. Works great!
Touch of Class!
I have 7 of these. They are all over the house on top of different vessels and can be switched depending on what is needed. Besides being so practical, as other reviewers have mentioned, that touch of brass sitting on top adds a touch of class!
My brass frog came in Eco friendly packaging and was heavier and more beautiful than I ever imagined. I’m ordering the whole set because flower arranging is just around the corner. Oh! And what a great hostess gift!
