Lollipop Cactus

Wanted to share my favourite plant at the moment. Lollipop Cactus (or Gymnocalycium mihanovichii friedrichii) is my favourite living specimen at the moment.

The colorful bulbs on the top vary from yellow, orange, coral, pink to red! They are wonderful to design with and add a super tropical feel to any container garden.

Lollipop cactus are very easy to care for and require filtered sunlight, watering once every 2 months, and keep their fluorescent bulbs all year round. They can easily be cared for in a container garden.

Good morning!

Autumn is upon us, I can smell it in the air. I wanted to share a lovely casual bridal bouquet from last season. To me it perfectly blends the floral season transition from summer to fall.

I just love using silver foliage to enhance the natural, soft yellows in this palette. Silvers and greys are neutral shade (like black or white) and can be used to showcase the gorgeous prominent blooms in the arrangement. They also add a cute flocked – fuzzy texture!

Have a great day! Xx

Ocean inspired, this bouquet is one of my favourites. Whites, soft peaches, corals, accented with pops of sea green succulents. This bridal arrangement came together so organically. With such a beautiful palette; how could it not?! My bride was so pleased with her flowers. She plans to root and nurture the cut succulents from the bouquet as a sentiment from her wedding day. Congratulations Kim + Don!
