Best of Boston

2011 Best Florist

New Leaf Flores

From 1 to 3 p.m. each day, Jeb Taylor and Daniel Lopez-Ospina close up their petite J.P. shop for an afternoon siesta. Perhaps that’s when they dream up otherworldly designs for their host of high-end clients, from the Boston Lyric Opera to L’Espalier. They also provide seasonal décor and stunning arrangements with unexpected textural elements (fruits and herbs, painted twigs, leaf-wrapped stems) for posh area homes.
