For florist Iann Doolittle, opening Plum on downtown Phoenix’s Grand Avenue was like creating one of his signature arrangements. Just as he combines flowers and botanicals in ways other designers might not, he brings a unique creativity honed in some of the country’s most dynamic places (Los Angeles, New Orleans, Brooklyn) back to his native city and within a space that, as he puts it, has “a vibe.”

Visitors can attend one of Plum’s seasonal workshops or drop in to browse candles, pottery and, of course, Doolittle’s striking compositions. “I love a bold color palette and interesting textures,” he explains. “Our approach to design is like getting a tattoo: We sit down with our clients and hear what they’re dreaming up.” This attention to detail is as distinctive as Doolittle’s bouquets, which range from modern and monochromatic to tropical to ethereal. Monthly and weekly subscriptions are available as are tempting gift baskets that strike the right blend of luxury and personality.
