Great photos from latest new install

This space is open and bright and a great work environment beautifully accented by plants from Everything Grows
These Dracaena Lisas pictured above are tall and dramatic and beautifully complement the  lines and high ceilings of this space.  Even the rich green color of the leaves makes a statement against the bold wall colors.
These Ficus Lyrata Columns frame the main entrance and will do very well with all of the natural light streaming in the windows.  A bowl of Orangina Bromeliads accent the sitting area in the foreground.

Earthwalls are one of our best sellers

These earthwalls are great for partitions and for making a statement.  This one below has a yucca plant in the middle and two Dracaena Lemon Limes on either side of it, and looks fantastic in the natural light from the skylight that it is under.

The earthwall below is seen from two different angles really helps give an otherwise long wide corridor some much needed definition and accents the plaques above it quite nicely.  The earthwall is only one foot deep so it easy to still get close to the plaques above it and read them. It contains three Aglaonema Cutlasses with rich green leaves and interesting variegation.

Unusual Aechmea Fasciata Bromeliad

This arrangement with both an Orchid and a Bromeliad really looks great.  The pink bromeliad is an Aechmea Fasciata, which you do not see much of anymore.  They used to be popular, but they had spines on the edges of the bracts, and it was easy to get cut when caring for the plant and they went out of style.  Now this new variation is spineless, making them easy to handle.  Don't be surprised if they come back in style again, especially with this improvement.  Adding fullness to the the arrangement is a Neanthe Bella Palm.
