Smith is an award-winning designer, gardener and lifestyle expert.

“I’ve handpicked these cut flower varieties because they are proven performers that give a great show with bountiful blooms and vibrant colors,” Smith said. “Home gardeners can fill their flowerbeds with the many varieties, or add them to the vegetable garden to attract pollinators and add floral interest. Each flower in this collection makes an excellent cut flower to create an arrangement and extend the joy gardeners get from the blooms. They can snip a few stems of Gomphrena Ping Pong, Sunflower Vincent, Snapdragon Sonnet or Lisianthus Rosita and get creative building their own floral design.”
