Native blooms in South Carolina | COLAtoday - COLAtodayWednesday, March 31, 2021
Each of these indiginous species have a similar look – a series of small green leafs branching from a center stem – with slightly varying leaf patterns. Magnolia Southern Magnolias produce fragrant white flowers in the summer, so stay on the lookout for those and their leaves are a notable dark green with a tan underside. There are three types of magnolia indigenous to South Carolina – southern, star and sweetbay.Noisette Roses Noisettes originated in Charleston, dating back to the first decade of the 19th-century. They are tall shrubs or vigorous climbing roses with elegant, slender foliage. The blooms showcase pastel colors including yellow hues. Oakleaf Hydrangea These large shrubs can be spotted all around town. The pillowy cone shape these flowers display is due to the clustering of hundreds of small flowers. Depending on the time you pick them, you could have white, red, or orange flowers. Wild Indigo Pay homage to South Carolina’s history with the indigo sprigs. It’s no surprise why these flowers were once used to dye clothing with their rich violet hue. Yellow Jessamine We can’t talk about South Carolina flowers and not mention the state flower. The yellow jessamine features trumpet shaped, yellow blooms, which you can begin to spot in early spring. Wanting more local blooms? Check out this list of South Carolina’s native plants.

Grow Plant Shop's First Brick-and-Mortar to Open Saturday - Fort Worth MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
It's the final week in the Airstream for Magnolia Avenue plant shop Grow.
That's because, on Saturday, Grow will be celebrating the grand opening of its new digs — the shop's first-ever brick-and-mortar location at 4800 Camp Bowie Blvd.
In a social media announcement, Grow stated that it would forgo a grand opening party due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Only six customers will be allowed in the shop at a time, and any overflow will need to wait outside, six feet apart. Masks are also required.
Still, it's a welcome change for the plant shop that built a loyal following on Magnolia, thanks to its eye-catching, chrome Airstream, parked on the lawn next to Maggie's R&R and stocked to the brim with an ample selection of shrubs, succulents, and other greenery. Owners Emily and Bobby Lynge always saw the Airstream as temporary, however, and during the pandemic, were able to make the move to the space once occupied by The Enchanted Florist on Camp Bowie.

Her store was closed for a week after the statewide stay-at-home order was enforced, but she later reopened her business to offer deliveries only.Still she said the COVID-19 pandemic is wilting her business. Newton said she lost 95% of her sales.“We lost an awful lot of business with Disney, Universal, the hotels and restaurants in the area.

Rebel Girl Floral Arranges 'Flowers for the Wild at Heart' | Lake Minnetonka - Lake Minnetonka MagazineWednesday, March 31, 2021
Floral Sothea Keller, rebels against the ordinary. Vowing to never make the same arrangement twice, orders are custom made and created to give each flower a purpose. Sothea views herself as a garden florist, arranging “flowers for the wild at heart” and emphasizes the importance of creating a unique display while encapsulating the personality of each client.Rebel Girl FloralHer husband and business partner, James Keller, shares her approach. “I just want people to enjoy flowers and to experiment with just not having something typical,” he says. “I want them to be wowed.” The couple’s exposure to the floral industry does not fall short. James’ mother and sister are professional florists, and Sothea has been in the business for almost 15 years. Working alongside her in-laws helped her learn the ropes. Primarily focusing her work on wedding arrangements, Sothea eventually began to branch out to other events and custom work. Recognizing that the wedding industry is filled with florists, Sothea took another route—one that celebrates other important moments in life. After she, unfortunately, attended several funerals, she noticed that a majority of the arrangements fell flat. Seeing the same stark variation of flowers, shapes and colors, Sothea knew that there was a void that needed to be filled in the i... https://lakeminnetonkamag.com/rebel-girl-floral-arranges-flowers-wild-heart
