Roses are all right, but succulents — if properly repotted and cared for — can easily thrive even if you're not a natural gardener. Don't fancy them in a bouquet? Some of these options below offer beautiful vases that will continue to be cherished even if the plants don't last.
The brand first started off with succulents in artisanal teak vases, and they're now available as lovely bouquets. Dóro’s unique succulent arrangements are carefully hand-wrapped, each offering five to 10 different varieties of succulents in addition to an assortment of freshly cut flowers. For large bouquets, a guaranteed mininum of five to 10 roses will be included. As the bouquets are artisanally made, the arrangement is not customisable, but it leaves an element of surprise for both the sender and receiver. Add on the optional wax sealed envelope with a message to make your gift extra special.
Dóro, C-7-13, Empire Damansara, Damansara Perdana, PJ. RM189-RM339. Order your bouquet here or call 012 343 5339.
For those insistent on customisation, Olea is up for the challenge. Its succulent hand bouquets are wrapped with selected succulents and seasonal fillers. If you have a special arrangement in mind and don’t see what you are looking for in the online catalogue, get in touch with them and upload a picture as reference. Alternatively, drop by the boutique florist and convey your expectations over a cup of tea. Personally pick up your bouquet or have them delivered to your loved one. Make sure to request a free message card upon ordering.
Olea Florist, 11-1-5 Jalan 4/109F, Danau Desa Business Centre, Taman Danau Desa, Taman Desa, KL. RM80-RM200. Order your bouquet here or call 03 7986 0590 for more info.
If bouquets are too short-lived, settle on a planter instead. JustPlant uniquely crafts every succulent planter to suit different environments, be it for your home, garden or the office. Name your budget, provide a photo for inspiration and have your customised arrangement delivered right to your doorstep. JustPlant will also be having a Mother’s Day pop-up on May 11 at Lush Pavilion KL where you can take home a succulent or cactus when you visit the store with mum. Lush’s black pots are more than vehicles for shampoos and cleansers — bring them to the shop and they can be repurposed into new homes for your succulent.
