Eucalyptus ficifolia: Australian National Botanic Gardens in Canberra, the capital city of Australia. The garden supports a living collection of around 74,000 individual plants arranged in 40 hectares of themed sections. It is the largest scientific collection of Australian native plants in which the collection originates from plants sourced from the wild, accompanied by herbarium specimens for taxonomic study.
This minimalist ring is fashioned solely from branches of grevillea, an Australian native commonly grown on the U.S. West Coast. "It's one of my favorite plants for wreaths," says Thompson. "I love how the narrow leaves are green on one side and silver on the other, which creates an ombre effect."
