Dangerous Romance – Venus Fly Trap Inspiration for Garden Design

As promised last week, here is the first of the ‘other’ two inspiration boards for gardens related to romantic flowers…. (The first being inspired by the Magnolia and the other inspired by the Toad Lily)

Dangerous Romance.

Inspired by the movie “The Little Shop Of Horrors” and the Venus Fly trap who eats its prey, I went for a slightly campy, slightly Victorian feel.  Romance doesn’t always come in a sweet and syrupy package.  Sometimes it is a bit more acerbic and edgy.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
