bark & bloom is a modern plant shop offering a wide range of plants, pots, and naturally inspired gifts and decor. As you enjoy the greenery, take some time to smell a few naturally scented soy candles, and peruse our expanding line of cards, journals and vintage poster prints. Let our fairy garden accessories inspire your inner (or actual) child, or browse our grown-up collection of local and nationally sourced jewelry makers.

At bark & bloom, you are surrounded with plant-life for your home, office, friends and family. We can help you create custom potted arrangements with succulents, cacti or low-light leafy tropicals. Our “Pot ‘em up!” services offer new plant owners convenience and confidence (small plants enjoy complimentary potting). Large and small, we curate our pot collections to give you a wide choice of colors and modern styles. And airplants provide a potless alternative clinging to branches and rocks, or presenting themselves in elegant glass orbs. Care instructions are always included.

bark & bloom is named for the curly willow trees and blooming perennials that started our entrepreneurial adventure. In 2009, Anne began selling perennial divisions from her mom’s garage in Cedar Rapids to better support our own plant purchases. Later, the color, texture, quick growth and incredible range of willow varieties became a passion. We believe in the power plants bring to our living spaces. The business has always been rooted in plants (sorry, it’s difficult to avoid these puns), and we continue to provide services and gifts that support and improve everyone’s indoor plantscape and urban jungle lifestyle.
