Ryann Davis of Succulent creates beautiful and neglectable arrangements that can be sent nationwide
We're big proponents of weekly flowers
here at AT but if you're looking to be green, unless you're purchasing organic flowers
from your local farmer's market, cut flowers can be among the least sustainable things you can buy. We went looking for an alternative and found one last night when we were introduced to Ryann Davis, one of the founders of Succulent, when she spoke at an event we attended...
Succulent was born out of the idea that there had to be a green alternative to cut-floral design. Using locally grown, pesticide-free succulents, planted in organic soil, and closely adhering to green principles in everything from pot choices to packing materials to delivery methods, Succulent creates arrangements that echo the natural beauty of cut flower arrangements, but which are renewable, as well as sustainable. Like cut florists, Succulent creates individual made-to-order arrangements, using the hundreds of locally available varieties of succulents, and delivers them nationwide (check the sendable section for arrangements that are currently available for shipping outside of Los Angeles). They even create succulent bouquets for brides to carry down the aisle. The added benefit of these arrangements? Unlike cut flowers, they can be re-purposed to enjoy for months to come. And, to add to their appeal, succulents are "neglectable," a delightful plus for those with black thumbs. A modern alternative to cut flowers that fits neatly into our home, whether mid-century or Hollywood Regency, that carefree, long-lasting and green to boot (as well as affordable)? That's Succulent
