Lilac Green was born out of Covid-19 in June 2020 – after both Boston and Rachel lost their jobs working in the floristry industry during the height of the pandemic. With a lot of time on their hands, and a wealth of creative experience and passion but nowhere to use it, they decided to launch Lilac Green and see what would happen!
A few months later, thanks to the incredible support from their community in Brisbane, interstate and even overseas – Lilac Green is thriving. Rachel and Boston couldn’t be more grateful and humbled by the overwhelming love they’ve received over the past 5 months, and can’t thank their customers enough. Boston says that it’s because of them they’re able to live their dreams every day.
The two owners have a storied history, meeting all the way back in 2007. After years of moving around for work, a chance meeting at a friend’s in Brisbane in 2018 brought them full circle, and they’re now living happily together along with their dog, Oskar.
Boston is the photographer for the business, and loves shooting tulips, poppies and anthuriums but most of all, orchids, while Rachel creates their bespoke arrangements, focusing on the colour, form, and flow of the flowers, but most of all, making sure each arrangement is a “banger”!
The mission at Lilac Green is to provide people with exquisite flowers that bring life to any occasion or space, and they take immense pride in the beautiful arrangements they produce. Boston and Rachel personally hand-pick their fresh flowers, design and deliver directly to you in Brisbane and the surrounds daily.
