California in a Vase

California in a Vase: Native Plant Arrangements for Every Season, is an odyssey in the art of floral design – a voyage that takes us into the Golden State’s most rugged wildlands, back to our home gardens and ultimately to a vase. This is a pioneering book with a novel message: that the plants the define our home offer resounding beauty in any arrangement. This book contains floral designs created with California native plants from The Gottlieb Native Garden, in the LA area and California Botanic Garden, in Claremont, California. Prepare to see arrangements that are refined, rustic, bold, delicate, evocative, colorful, spirited and more – as native plants can achieve any style while always speaking to a uniquely Californian aesthetic.
