Varieties:

There are more than 125 species with new hybrid plants being cultivated to withstand colder temperatures

It is a succulent and will last well out of water

Scent:

Uses:

Ornamental rock gardens, terrariums or as growing designs. Flowers work well as body flower designs

This is my ongoing creative workbook to research and capture design projects and techniques. You will mostly find ideas for floral art but I will also include some other projects such as gift packaging, cards and even cake decorating with a few lifestyle projects arranged in between.

Everything you see in this workbook was designed, made and photographed by me, unless specific credit is given to another designer.
