Holiday Classic Decor Elements Made Modern
Traditional materials used for jazzing up the season have a long history, but floral designer David Winston offers his own take on these popular holiday plants.
Boxwood: A green element in European gardens for centuries, boxwood’s unique suitability for being heavily pruned has made it the standard choice for topiary. Winston finds many out-of-the-box uses for boxwood, both as potted shrubs and cut material. It looks modern planted in repetition in containers or perched in pots with exaggerated height. And Marc Hall often uses cut boxwood twigs stuck into Styrofoam to form towering faux hedges for events.
