Flip a coin…

because you won’t be able to decide. Leucadendron and kumquat or Silvertree and succulent rosettes?  Both of these magnificent creations designed by Flora Grubb and Susie  Nadler of Flora Grubb Gardens will make quite a simplequietmodern  statement this Christmas whether you’re  keeping it for yourself or gifting it to someone special.  How much fun to inject some of this modern California artistry into a traditional mid-west or east coast setting?  With either of these choices it will be a  Christmas you ( or the recipient ) won’t soon forget.  I’ve got the quarter….OK , call it!


Hang it up

While vertical gardening is making a statement in municipalities on both sides of the pond, you might like to try your hand at it at home. Hung on a back fence or interior courtyard or porch wall these succulent filled panels present themselves like a living, breathing work of art. Seurat had his pointillist dots of paint…you’ll have the small green leaves in their various shades of greens, grays and reds to color your creation. Panels can be hung alone or combined for a truly impressive piece as shown.  If you get started now you have the entire summer to experience its developement. Who knows…you may take a liking to gardening “up” and decide to tackle an even more ambitious project.

will surely be the reaction upon opening this amazing Valentine gift. An air plant, almost no maintenance is required…a mist of water every now and again will keep it’s sculptural beauty thriving. Beautifully presented in it’s white box  this  specimen Tillandsia from Flora Grubb Garden makes quite the modern statement. Me?…I’d love to recieve this. Wall mounted and multiples? I’d love it even more.       http://shop.floragrubb.com/spectacular-xerographica-gift-box/
