Fabulous Flower Market Finds

The Los Angeles Flower market was abundant with gorgeous florals today. It is truly the best part of my job. Everything i see at the market evokes inspiration to me.
This morning was no exception! The dahlias are in full swing! One of my favorite growers, Endow (Greg) has the most incredible selection of Dahlias. The deep lavender ones were eye catching today. If you have an event over the next month, be certain to incorporate them into your visual design. You won't be disappointed. Another favorite today was the Pee Gee Hydrangea. I am a HUGE fan of hydrangea. I don't think a day goes by at The Hidden Garden without hydrangea in the cooler. Pee Gee Hydrangea is a unique variety as it is more cone shaped in design (rather and a ball) and each bloom is individually visible. This variety came straight from one of our Oregon Growers (Z Calla). Another great find from Z Calla right now are the mini colored calla lily. The rich vibrant fire Calla was in full swing....i just love the see of callas in the photo above! The Snowberries (in pink) were also so beautiful today. They are a great texture element for bouquets and boutonnieres

Enjoy the visual feast...we'll chat again next week about the great flowers at the Los Angeles Market. Hopefully my "finds" will inspire you with your designs!
