Focusing on research to treat and cure cystic fibrosis, Vertex Pharmaceuticals just completed a brand new headquarters in the Torrey Pines area of San Diego. Due to a long standing relationship, Good Earth Plant Company was asked to add plants in 34 rectangular planter dividers throughout its new offices. In addition, we created the plantscape for a couple of large planter areas adjacent to the master stairway.

Each floor featured its own unique variety of plants, with a different plant palate per floor. On the first floor, Good Earth Plants used lemon-lime variegated dracaena Warnekii to add color to the dividers.
Looking down on the stairway planter. We chose Sago Palms for mass, short Sanseveria for a vertical splash of color, and Tillandsia for the grass like shape. Each is arranged in complimentary curved lines. We blended in replica plants to go under the stairway.
This planter area is under the stairway. While looking bright in the photo, it is actually too dark to successfully grow plants. These are all “faux” or “replica” plants. Look pretty good, don’t they? Did we fool you?

The second floor gets the unusually shaped “ZZ” plants in all their plant dividers.
The ever-popular Ficus Lyrata provides a chunky shaped canopy for an informal lounge area. We really like the origami pots!
Variagated and patterned plant leaves are a hot trend in 2018 plantscaping designs.

Using unusual containers like this origami inspired white pot gives your professional plantscaping a unique twist that really makes an impact for little cost.
