Green Eye rose adds texture

Texture- popularity continues to grow!


The Flower Stand- By J Schwanke
The popularity of Texture continues to grow…we all love color… and for decades color has reigned supreme – as the #1 driving force – especially when it comes to flowers…

We look for the perfect color- to match, coordinate, contrast or combine… to give our arrangement, event or setting the perfect coloration… but several years ago… we started to notice that texture was literally ‘biting at the heels’ of color…

Designers were starting to look for flowers that had unique texture… to add to their arrangements, events and settings. These textural flowers have grown in number and today… texture is “neck and neck” with color when it comes to flowers and design based selections…

Texture really pulls out all the stops – in Autumn… there are so many different types of textural flowers… and the popularity of “Protea” is definitely all about texture- with pin cushions, mink, banksia… all striving to outdo one another with texture.


There are so many Options for Fall Flower Arranging…scabiosa pods…crocsmachia pods, antique hydrangeas… it literally ‘vibrates’ our senses…

Take the rose – pictured here in this blog… It’s called “Green Eye” and the rose is grown by our friends at Green Valley Floral – we have visited Green Valley many times.. and filmed two different documentaries about their farm in Salinas California…

This unique rose is all about texture… as the center of the rose protrudes … and has evolved into a unique ‘green textural eye”… surrounded by creamy petals… it’s a great example of how texture is becoming more popular – when it comes to flowers…
