Sensational Sansevierias!

This week's feature focuses on the stalwart, sensational Sansevieria plant.  

Here at Everything Grows, our interior landscape designers love adding structure, color, texture and tone to California office and commercial spaces.  When the work space or design aesthetic calls for a structured, architectural plant, the Sansevieria can be the right choice.  





Its vertical, pointed leaves, variety of colors and distinctive markings add height and greenery to any environment while providing the benefits of live plants into any space.

We think you'll agree that the Sansevieria's design-friendly look complements  whether the plant stands alone in a container or as an accent in an arrangement.
