It seems fitting that in a year when Miley Cyrus wins two Grammy awards for her song “Flowers”, flowers were indeed a highlight on the 66tth annual Grammy Awards red carpet on Sunday, Feb. 4.
The entire red carpet was in flower, thanks to botanical artist Tu Bloom and his design team. This was the fifth year Suntory Flowers partnered with Bloom. New this year were BluOcean chrysanthemums from Suntory’s Florigene division in South America. Bloom and his team were amazed at how truly blue and purple they are. Each year, he uses Florigene’s vivid purple Moon carnations, which have an outstanding vase life.
Planter bases were filled with Senetti Blue Bicolor Improved plants grown locally by Armstrong Growers. It was an outstanding, uniform crop.
Bloom also incorporated Wave petunias from PanAmerican Seed, demonstrating how you can mix bedding plants in floral arrangements.
