On this week's Stem Friends, please give a warm welcome to...

Native Poppy Flower Shop | San Diego, CA

Cosmos is a Greek word meaning harmony or balanced universe. To the Victorians, cosmos were used to signify modesty. Cosmos are native to Central America where they grow wild, especially in Mexico. Cosmos attract butterflies and birds to the garden, and are just the most magical little blooms. Here to tell us a little bit more about themselves: Cosmos!

 

Q: What is your cocktail of choice?

A: A cosmopolitan of course! There is nothing quite like having a cocktail named after yourself and it sure is delicious! There is just such elegance and sophistication when sipping one of these guys. If you haven't tried a watermelon cosmo, it's the perfect refresher in the heat of summer!

 

Q: What is your favorite color palette? Bright & Cheery, Dark & Moody, or Neutral & Elegant.

A: I love being placed in a neutral and elegant color palette! There is just something about adding a pop of my pastel coloring and free-flowing stems that brings about elegance and whimsy to any neutral arrangement.

 

Q: If you could go anywhere in the world tomorrow where would it be?

A: Mexico, of course! Anywhere where I can grow freely and wild, I'm there!

 

Q: Who is your girl boss inspiration?

A: I admire Emma Stone! She is fun, flirty, and playful, yet elegant and graceful in the way she carries her self. I mean, have you seen her in La La Land? What a dream!

 

Q: What is your favorite type of ice cream?

A: My favorite type of ice cream would have to be vanilla bean with rainbow sprinkles on top. Classic with a little bit of "party" on top!

 

Q: When I'm not in Native Poppy's stem bar, you can find me...

A: Exploring! My love for adventure stems (pun intended) from my appreciation for nature. I mean, helloooo, I get to live and grow in the most beautiful places!
