The idea for Tilly sprouted (#plantpun intended!) amongst four high school friends during an annual summer reunion in Montauk, NY. Sitting amidst one friend’s backyard, the conversation veered into a need for creative, accessible landscape design that could be done remotely and without the high price tag.
They realized a beautiful space was a priority to them and their families, but there seemed to be a lack of attainable and easy to use resources. With Blythe as the resident landscape expert and the others providing a plethora of business savvy, the team decided to see what might grow...
Oh, we’re glad you asked!
Tilly is short for Tillandsia.
Tillandsia is a genus of perennial flowering plants in the Bromeliaceae family…have we lost you yet? Don’t worry, you can call her Tilly! She’s the super cool air plant you’ve seen on your Instagram feed that gets the majority of their nutrients from the air so can grow just about anywhere! They are low maintenance and most importantly, fun!
