Holiday Plants Brighten the Season - Lincoln SentinelWednesday, December 02, 2020
The poinsettia was named after Joel Robert Poinsett, an amateur botanist and the first American ambassador to Mexico. He sent some poinsettia plants home to Greenville, South Carolina in 1825. Poinsettias are now the number one potted flowering plant grown in the United States. The large colorful parts of the plant are not true flowers, they are modified leaves called `bracts’ . The true flowers are the small yellow/green buds in the center of the bracts. When choosing a poinsettia to bring home, look for tightly clustered yellow buds and crisp, bright, undamaged foliage.To read more please log in or subscribe to the digital edition https://etypeservices.com/Lincoln%20Sentinel-RepublicanID387/... https://www.lincolnsentinel.com/opinions/holiday-plants-brighten-season
Now Hear This — Dreamy Dallas Flowers and the Top Florists Who Create Them - papercitymag.comTuesday, October 22, 2019
As for favorite florists? Bows & Arrows. I remember when the darling Rico fam opened up shop on Greenville Avenue years ago (that store has since shuttered) and their business has blossomed (pun intended) ever since, with everything from floral arrangements to full-on event design. They are absolutely genius. I also adore GRO — another husband-wife owned biz. I took a floral arranging class at their Fair Park-area studio a couple years ago. Cathartic doesn’t begin to describe that two-hour session of life.Bows and Arrows, 4908 Bryan Street, 214.828.2697GRO Floral and Event Design, 3500 Commerce Street, 214.370.9846Lisa Collins Shaddock, Senior EditorI love receiving any floral arrangement! It’s amazing what fresh flowers do to brighten your space and mood. At home, I typically go for simple arrangements of a single type of flower, but it is hard to land on a favorite. I worked with the ultra-talented Junior Villanueva with Garden Gate on the florals for my spring wedding and he helped me incorporate two of my most beloved blooms into the day: the parrot tulip, which I love for its classic shape and cool, frayed edges; and the lily of the valley, which I carried for my bouquet and also used as a motif on everything from the save the dates to our wedding cake.The Garden Gate, 2303 Farrington Street, Suite 100, 214.220.1272Billy Fong, Culture and Style EditorI believe that I have shared before that two of my skill sets are not gift-wrapping or floral arrangements. When I attempt either it looks as though a serial killer has taken creative license. It’s frightening. That said, I do love receiving beautifully wrapped gifts and am always beaming when I get a delivery of flowers for my desk (hint hint). That beaming turns in to outright giddiness when I see that the delivery is from Grange Hall.When I am in the mood to buy flowers for my home or to bring as a last-minute hostess gift I pop into Avant Garden. A Dallas institution, created by my dear friend, Todd Fiscus, that was open for close to 15 years in Highland Park Village and then in 2017 moved to The Shops of Highland Park. My imagination is always sparked when I walk-in and even though I don’t have consummate taste when it comes to flowers, I know the creative and friendly staff will steer me in the right direction.Grange Hall, 4445 Travis Street, 214.443.0600Avant Garden, 4254 Oak Lawn Avenue, 214.559.3432Hillery Stack, Dallas PublisherMy most favorite thing in the world is a bouquet of sunflowers. They are so happy. Everything about them makes me smile. Their simplicity is endearing yet at the same time their bold beautiful commands your attention. When I close my eyes and envision my happy place, it’s a picnic in a Tuscan sunflower field. I think one of the most beautiful and unique sunflower arrangements I’ve received was here in Dallas from Dr. Delphinium. It’s my go-to place for all things florals.Dr. Delphinium, 5806 W.

Here’s your guide to preserving and crafting with flowers straight from your garden - OregonLiveWednesday, March 31, 2021
Working from her home studio in Hillsboro, Eliades said having this business during the pandemic has helped her to push her creative boundaries.Anyone can craft with plants, however, and florist Jeremi Carroll and farmer John Peterson said a good place to start is just by looking around your garden.“See what you have. What aesthetic do you want? What are you trying to build?” Peterson said. “See what textures you might want to incorporate into whatever you’re making.”Owners of Pollinate Flowers in Newberg, Carroll and Peterson started a dry flower program at their shop last year. They create arrangements and wreaths made from flowers they grow and dry on their farm, and even sell wreath kits at their retail shop.Carroll said that you can dry anything, but some flowers are just naturally easier to work with than others. Roses, yarrow, statice, Gomphrena, amaranth, marigold, hydrangea, grass seed heads, feverfew, celosia and strawflower are all varieties that are considered dry when they’re alive, he said, so they will dry easily and hold their shape well.“They already have a crispy texture to petals, so when they dry they don’t change structure or color,” he explained.24Dried flower craftsThere are multiple ways to dry flowers, but the three most common methods are hanging upside down, using silica gel and pressing. Carroll said the traditional way is to bunch flowers together and hang them upside down in a dry and dark space. He recommended drying them in the house away from a window, where humidity is low.That method works for many flowers and grasses, but for daisy-like flowers, such as black-eyed Susans, drying works better with the petals and center of flower drying face-up, Carroll said. When they hang, the gravity will close up the petals around the center, so Carroll recommended dr... https://www.oregonlive.com/hg/2021/03/heres-your-guide-to-preserving-and-crafting-with-flowers-straight-from-your-garden.html

N.J. communities mourn those lost to COVID-19 with flowers and memories - NJ.comWednesday, March 31, 2021
Passaic EMT.At each location, including a Passaic fire station and Anthony E. Russo Park in Union, family and friends eulogized their loved ones and laid a flower for them, said Amanda Elisca, the florist who coordinated the events across the state.The effort is part of the Floral Hearts Project, a nationwide initiative pushing for an official national day of morning for those lost to COVID-19, said Elisca. As of Tuesday morning, there were more than 100 hearts laid out across the country, she said.But for Elisca, the push to bring the memorial to New Jersey was more personal. Her father, Cesar Perez, an EMS supervisor in Passaic, was a mentor and longtime friend of Israel “Izzy” Tolentino, the Passaic firefighter who died last March from the coronavirus, and a friend of Kevin Levia, an EMT in Passaic who also died from the virus.The day of mourning was for those who were left behind, missing their loved ones and in need of a way to express their grief a year later, she said.“These people don’t have anyone to reach out to,” said Elisca. “Usually if you lost someone you can get a hug from a friend. And we can’t do that now. Even a year into the pandemic, it’s even more important for us to reach out to people and to do these types of things.”In Passaic, mourners gathered at the West Side Fire Station, remembering Tolentino and Levia. Both Perez and Tolentino’s wife, Maria Vazquez, were at the event, with Vazquez laying flowers for her husband and Perez in full uniform remembering his friend he’d call, “Nudge.”“It was very, very emotional at the firehouse,” said Perez. “There had to be 100-something people.”In Union, mourners gathered at Anthony E. Russo Park,... https://www.nj.com/coronavirus/2021/03/nj-communities-mourn-those-lost-to-covid-19-with-flowers-and-memories.html
