I’m not sure if this is exactly what you’re looking for but one alternative that was suggested to me was curly willow. It’s supposed to be a lot cheaper than manzanita and has kind of a similar feel when arranged.

I’m just going to look around the farm for nice branches lol. It’s only there for a decoration, I’m not going to buy a branch when we have a tonne of them on the property..

Well curvy willow branches grow here so we just used those. Our florist had a bush out back so she cut them for us and only charges us $1 a branch. I could have done it myself but our florist dried and preserved them because when branches dry out after being cut they break.

I found a few lovely photos of cut branches off trees for you:

Oh yeah and I don’t know if  curvy willow grows where you are but I see ads for free willow around here a lot. People cut their trees back and give it away or a bunch of branches break in a storm and they offer the branches to anyone who wants to come haul them off for free. If they do grow there watch craigslist or other ad sites.

Peoniesplease:  Hi, I have a wedding coming up in October and I would love to rent your Manzanita Trees. Do you still rent them out? If so, what are the sizes and cost to do so? I can’t wait to hear from you!
