Peonies, for the way they "pop" open from a tight ball shaped bud and have such an abundant of ruffled petals. Their rarity - difficulty growing and very short season - makes them all the more special.
Why do you love floristry?
My mum tells me I've always loved picking flowers in the garden. As a little girl, she'd send me out to collect flowers for the dinner table and when I was feeling upset, it'd always calm me down. I still feel the same way and I love the way flowers connect people in so many ways.
What's your favourite place in Darwin?
The beach. Dripstone Cliffs are my go to for long sunset walks.
