Botanik Succulents, Orchids and Containers

Botanik in Summerland artfully blends furnishings with rare orchids, succulents, a stellar selection of containers, boxwood topiaries, and unique accessories. With a background in floral design and a lifelong love of gardening, owner Molly Hutto has been the creative force behind botanik’s popular succulent gardens.




“Many clients bring in their own special containers for us to design with succulents, orchids, and faux succulents, Molly explains. “Upon learning where the container is going to be placed in their home, we then figure out what plant would work best for that environment.”

Succulents and Air plants have been a growing trend. Easy care with little effort make a great combination for many not so green thumbs. Tillandsia (air plant) is the largest genus in the Bromeliad family. They are very hardy and require much less attention than other house plants. They don’t require soil, so you can place them in any container or use as a tabletop display.




Chiseled by hand of limestone, these aged trough planters are especially loved by tender succulents – a natural combination.

The ultimate in drought tolerant – custom faux succulent containers designed by Molly Hutto.  A brilliant alternative for rooms with little to no light is using faux succulents.  “We source out many different vendors for the best alternative to real succulents. The way we design the arrangements mimic our real succulent garden arrangements. Many clients can’t tell the difference by touch or sight,” Molly comments.

Located just south of Santa Barbara and Montecito in the beachside town of Summerland, botanik is a destination for home and garden enthusiasts and discerning designers. Set within the backdrop of a 1920’s Victorian, the boutique has garnered both regional and national acclaim for over a decade. The boutique’s interior and private garden abound with unique finds from all corners of the globe.

STORE HOURS: Open Monday-Saturday 10-5:00 and Sunday 11-4
