Marlyn Smithour

Marlyn began her journey into succulents when she started refurbishing old birdbaths and fountains. She found she had an eye for succulent/cacti arrangement and turning found objects into spectacular arrangements. Her art of arranging coupled with her love of growing succulents led Marlyn along with her husband Ken, to start Gardenia Gardens and Design. They now host monthly succulent workshops in their beautiful gardens in Fairfield. Marlyn's arrangements have won multiple awards from different succulent/cacti competitions including the prestigious San Francisco Succulent Society Show's “Best Display” in 2023.
