About this Class

Our 2022 Floral Spotlight Series honors the past, present, and future of our Gardens … blending the history of Longwood with spectacular floral design. Each month, we begin with a brief bit about Pierre S. du Pont and his wife Alice—from gardens they visited to important moments in their lives—related to that month’s theme. Then, our featured designer creates a spectacular floral design to beautifully complement the theme.

Let’s get tropical! Follow Mr. and Mrs. du Pont to the Caribbean and South America, and explore how they drew inspiration from their trips to Chile, Cuba, and Jamaica, ultimately making the colors and flowers of this region part of our permanent plant collection. Join Brad Austin as he uses floral material from tropical regions to create stunning displays.

Following the demonstration, you will receive a list of the materials used so that you may re-create the arrangements at home as well as three-month access to a video recording of the presentation.
