Phenology Floral Boutique is a florist in Somerset West founded and managed by flower designer, Nokwanda (Nox) Makunga, who has a PhD in Botany.
We create magical bespoken floral creations sticking to our philosophy of ‘translating floral visions to reality’ through innovative flower arranging and design. We aim to transform floral concepts into being as our philosophy is based on the Greek word ‘Phainos’ (Phenos), which essentially means to "show" or "bring to light" or "to make an appearance".
Phenology as a scientific concept is linked to the timing of events in our lives. Flowers are integral to marking important life events from the beginning of our lives until the end. Our team has over 16 years cumulative experience in the floral industry and we view floral arranging as an expression of art and self. We therefore celebrate and mark these moments in life with innovative floral art. Nature serves as our inspiration and the local flora (Fynbos) is often integrated into our floral art.
Phenology is dedicated to becoming one of the Western Cape's, and ultimately South Africa’s, most innovative and unique floral experiences. As a team, we aim to provide a comprehensive, unique and bespoken service to our valued clients. We are creatives that do not work with a ‘copy and paste’ attitude to flower arranging. We specialise in interpreting ideas and communicating feelings using flowers as a medium. Our work is designed to fit seamlessly into the spaces and the occasion as we explore the different characteristics of flowers, alone and in combinations to develop an aesthetic link between flowers and setting to ultimately display our floral art.
We are determined and continue to develop our brand through use of innovative design styles, current technologies and guaranteed client satisfaction. With a deep understanding of Botany, our most important aim is to use the freshest flowers, best quality floral products and more important to provide a value-added people-centered approach to our clientele.
We at Phenology Flora Couture work to the principle of "Timing is everything!"
