Also, newly in stock are Mimosa pudica ‘Sensitive Plant’. 4” plants $8.95. Do you know about the ‘Sensitive Plant’? They’re a much sought after curiosity because of their response to touch and other stimulation. They respond by rapidly closing and folding their leaves almost instantly. They also produce sweetly scented pink powder puff-like flowers. They are certainly a curiosity to watch and grow!

And for those longing for the dreamy days and nights of spring, got some full and budded Jasmine aka Jasminum polyanthum in stock. Their buds are about ready to bust out some of the most dreamy jasmine scent you can imagine. One whiff and you’ll be transported to the romantic dream weaving of a spring night. 4” $10.95.

All plants pictured are in stock while supplies last. Shop hours this weekend, Fri + Sat 11-6 and Sun 12-5.

Big News!  I just found out that The Plant Provocateur was listed last month as one of Racked L.A.'s Top Gardens and Nurseries For Stylish Plant Life!  This came as a pleasant surprise.  I had no idea.  Well, I have to say a huge 'Thanks!' to @rackedla for including me on a list of such heavy hitters.  I'm truly flattered and honored!  It's also very encouraging!  It tells me that the word is getting out there about the shop, which is exciting, and that I am fulfilling my mission to inspire with plants.
