But great design can sometimes be found when combining elements from unexpected places.

Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote that a weed is just “a plant whose virtues have not yet been discovered,” —join us in this class designed to help you discover these virtues of weeds by featuring their beauty in an arrangement. Led by expert floral designer Roseann Christian, learn how to incorporate weeds such as Queen Anne’s lace and St. John’s wort into a showstopping arrangement that celebrates often overlooked weeds and create your own arrangement to take home.
