About Growing Wild Floral Co

Serving Northern Virginia and the Washington DC Metro area


Based out of her 65 acre flower farm located in Delaplane, Va, Barbara Von Elm, owner and founder of Growing Wild Floral Co, works  with a fabulous team of flower growers and floral designers.     Her team grows a variety of trendy flowers and botanicals  which she loves to incorporate into her wedding designs. Augmenting arrangements with locally sourced, high quality, organic flowers is not only a great way of going “green” but helps brides get the best possible bang for their floral buck. Flowers grown at the farm include luscious dahlias, dinner plate dahlias, peonies, lilac,  hydrangea and succulents, to name a few.  They are fresh-cut shortly before the wedding, so they will look their prettiest in your bouquets and arrangements.

Since its inception in 1996, the Growing Wild team has done over 1600 weddings  ranging in size from 30 to 300. Venues include large trendy downtown DC hotels and mansions to rustic barns and vineyards. Over time the company has built up a large repertoire of hard goods including various styles of containers, arches and chuppahs for use by clients in her "rent an arrangement" program.

Barbara is the best! She made me feel comfortable and stress free in the floral process. She is so fun to work with and will make you smile for sure. The flowers were so beautiful and I love that they are all from her own farm. She was very thorough and nailed the look I had in mind. I would highly recommend her to anyone in the Maryland/ DC / Virginia area, you won't regret it!

Professional Network & Endorsements

We highly recommend Barabara of Growing Wild. She was even the florist for our blizzard wedding and the bride's flowers were still stunning. We are always thrilled when we know it's her work will be shooting. She is creative and amazing to work with!

Growing Wild time and time again comes in at budget and provides a gorgeous product. My clients are always thrilled with the bouquets and arrangements. Growing Wild is always on time at the beginning and end of the event. Responses via email are always timely, and appointments are easy to make. But ultimately it comes down to the floral design. The array of props is wide, and the quality of the floral is just stunning. You can't go wrong when you hire Growing Wild.

Barbara's flowers are always amazing and our clients really enjoy working with her. We look forward to any event that employs her floral decor.

We have worked with Growing Wild Floral Co several times in the past, and they are a joy to work with. Their staff is friendly and efficient, and their arrangements are absolutely breathtaking.

We enjoy having Barbara and Growing Wild in our venue. Her flowers are creative and fabulous. She is wonderful to work with. Growing Wild truly does exceed our expectations.
