Oakland’s Coolest Garden Shop

Julie Carlson August 10, 2012

Crimson Horticultural Rarities is a “rare plant shop and floral design boutique” specializing in unexpected vegetative decor (plus terrariums and taxidermy)

Owners Allison Futeral and Leigh Oakies have created an edgy curiosity-shop atmosphere, mixing found objects with newer pieces: “We believe your indoor and outdoor worlds can beautifully mesh together,” they say. It’s all part of the new wave of happening shops in the Temescal neighborhood (also see Esqueleto in Oakland).
