PanAmerican Seed and Suntory Flowers will have a major presence on the red carpet at the 2024 Grammy Awards. PanAmerican Seed’s popular Wave Spreading Petunias will star in the red-carpet designs of Tu Bloom, the official Botanical Artist for the Grammy Awards.
On Sunday, February 4, the 66th Grammy Awards will honor top-performing recording artists during music’s biggest night, and millions of viewers will see Wave Spreading Petunias strike a colorful pose amongst the headliners with a unique look by acclaimed designer Mr. Bloom. This garden display includes the E3 Easy Wave series in the colors of Sky Blue, White, and Red. Thousands of Wave plants will welcome recording artists at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles and add a touch of living color to this annually televised and much-anticipated event.
“I am a longtime fan and collaborator with Wave Petunias and have been eager to build a red-carpet look with them for years,” says Tu Bloom, owner of Tu Bloom Designs, who celebrates his 16th year as the official Botanical Artist for the Grammys. “You will see Wave in a whole new way with the vibe I’m creating. It will be glamorous and hold its own at this star-studded event, but also attainable for viewers who want a symphony color at home.”
“Wave Petunias already are the spotlight of so many gardens worldwide because of their easy, spreading color. I have no doubt they’ll feel right at home on the red carpet amongst other star performers,” says Sarah Makiejus, Marketing Manager for PanAmerican Seed. “It’s been amazing watching Tu Bloom work his magic with the Wave brand, and we can’t wait to see his garden-inspired look at the Grammys this February.”
Suntory Flowers will also bring something new and something blue to the Grammy Awards. Tu Bloom will be incorporating Suntory’s new BluOcean chrysanthemums into his fabulous designs, along with Moon Carnations. In addition to the fresh cut flowers donated by Suntory’s Florigene division, it has partnered with Armstrong Growers to produce Senetti plants in the new Blue Bicolor Improved.
