Prefer succulent rosettes on your ornaments? We have also added them to our  grapevine wreaths. Sticking to our local roots here in the forests of northern California, we created wood slice rosette ornaments hung with jute for a natural, elegant look. You get to pick if you want a cluster of succulents or one large rosette!

Sempervivum Wreath: $10

Our sister nursery,  CalForest, grows trees for reforestation all along the West Coast. We borrowed some of their Giant Seqouia cones and thought, why not! Behold the trio Succulent and Seqouia Cone Ornaments, a tribute to our giant redwoods!
