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. 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.

Love this gorgeous brass frog. It beautifully accents my Ikebana vase and makes flower arranging so much easier. Another great find from Bloomist!
Beautifully crafted, with a nice solid weight. I am excited to pair it with some fall branches in my Manhattan apartment this weekend!
This is such a practical solution to filling up a larger vase with fewer stems. Great for the home gardener who enjoys bringing in their own blooms!
These are just as beautiful and substantial as they look online. I especially appreciated the diameter — it fit many of my vases at home, and means that I can give the frog as a gift without obligating the recipient to purchase a frog-proprietary vase from Bloomist. The holes in the frog fit a variety of branches and sprigs. Lovely and (as far as a quick online search showed) unique.
The Brass Frogs can create unique and one-of- a- kind arrangement!
Great tool for splitting buds in the vase
I had no idea how helpful this brass frog would be to complement my arrangements. That little sliver of brass atop my vessel updated my home in an expected way. Who knew a tiny brass accent piece could do double duty as a shiny organic detail as well as branch and stem support system. I am very pleased.
Brass Frogs are a huge support in creating beautiful and simple floral statements
