What are the top trends for flowers in 2019? Several floral designers who live and breathe trends gave us the inside scoop.

The most popular trend in floral design is texture. Think proteas, banksia, leucadendron, dahlias, cymbidium orchids, amaranthus, eucalyptus, dusty miller and astranthia. They all deliver texture.

Foliages and green plants are more and more taking center stage in designs. It’s the 70s all over again, with some of today’s favorites including euphorbias, jades, succulents and other arid plants, such as tillandsia, to name a few.
