Ferns for a New Client

Before there were flowers or even bees and butterflies to pollinate them, ferns ruled the planet. A primordial plant that carpets the Earth to this day, ferns represent tenacity and abundance while filling a room with a lush sense of vivacity. Through twists and turns of evolutionary adaptations, ferns have feathered the world’s biomes for more than a 100 million years and have diverged into more than 12,000 different species that inhabit 6 out of the 7 continents.

Show a new client that you and your company have staying power with the symbolic gift of one of these choice ferns.
