A Wild Flower

From exotic to humble, unbelievably fresh to artfully dried, Charlestown’s homegrown bud boutique treats its flowers like delicate children—and its customers like old friends. First, the blooms: Gerbera daisies that radiate like hot sunbursts, bright delphinium, and roses in hues of bright lemon yellow, russet, coral, and orange sherbet. Arrangements are creative but restrained, balancing more complex flowers (cymbidium or slipper orchids) with simpler textures (hydrangea and puffy peonies). Don’t miss the exquisite custom-made wreaths.
