Our complete range of beautiful flowers


A shrub is distinct from a tree because it tends to have multiple stems and generally be much shorter, not exceeding 20 feet in height. Some low shrubs such as lavender are frequently called subshrubs, but what they all have in common is their woody stems giving them various degrees of frost hardiness.

Camellia Japonica “Dr Burnside”

Azalea “California Snow”

The story of hansel&petal Kirk Hansel and I started out with humble beginnings – caring for other people’s houseplants and gardens while working our day jobs. Best friends from the age of eight, we grew up in rural New England, appreciating the abundance of nature all around us. Parting ways after college, we started separate careers and families, but were reunited when we bumped into each other nearly a decade later at a native plants conference in Southern California. We fell quickly into friendship again and realized we shared a love of flowers and gardening that went largely ignored working our lackluster jobs. In a matter of weeks we started hansel&petal Plant Care and Gardening, and worked our tails off evenings and weekends while building clientele. We jumped into the deep end, opening our shop in downtown Los Angeles, specializing in floral design for large events with an environmentally friendly slant.


hansel&petal Spring 2010

Our designs became the talk of the town and we won awards for aesthetics, customer service, and our green practices. In fact, our earth-friendly fertilization and watering techniques became so popular that we began teaching green gardening workshops, first in California, and then nationwide – including our native New England. Of course none of this would have been possible without the support of our wonderful customers, who share our values. It is with our loyal customers in mind that we bring you our first hansel&petal mail order catalog. We hope you enjoy our offerings – as always, if you have any questions about the selection and care of your plants, call us or send an email, and we’ll in touch. Peace and beauty to all of you, Petal Jones ( Kirk Hansel (

Container Plants

They do not thrive indoors, where the light is too dim, and humidity too low, for them to grow properly. HP10-CP1$45.99

Plants are grown in containers for a variety of reasons. In many cases it allows people to grow plants where they have no garden or where space is limited. Many plants cannot compete well in a border, so their own pot provides them with a unique environment where the soil type, watering and care can be tailored to that species. However in an exposed situation, container plants can dry out very quickly, especially when it is hot.

Cacti & Succulents

Most cacti and succulents hail from semi-deserts and therefore need as much light as can be provided. This means they will need siting on a window sill or in a greenhouse. Good air circulation is needed to prevent mealy bugs and red spider mite which thrive in hot unventilated conditions. They are often cultivated together because of their water storing capabilities.


These plants blend in among the stones as a means of protection. Grazing animals would otherwise eat them HP10-CS5$12.99
