Sweet Avalanche

Susan, our shop mannequin has really embraced the spirit of Oaks Day with a new lady-like head of pink flowers.

Pink roses are the order of the day and ‘Sweet Avalanche’ is the perfect powder puff pink variety.


The Melbourne Cup

Yellow roses are the traditional flower for the Melbourne Cup.
This beautiful large bloomed variety is ‘Golden Delicious’ and is displayed en masse at Crown Towers foyer.

Fashions on the Field

Everyone wants flowers for spring race days……….the boys need their buttonholes  and the girls can always find somewhere  to wear a bloom or two.

We wanted to make a fascinator for Susan (our mannequin) to wear in our window but  as she doesn’t have a head………..

We made her one…….. from flowers!

Come and see her in all her spring finery  this week at Tribal Rose 257 Smith St Fitzroy.

Giddy Up!

Victoria Derby Day marks the beginning of Melbourne Cup Week and the flower of the day is a blue cornflower.

The carnival is celebrated at one of our city’s most glamorous hotels with a different floral installation for each of the race meetings.

Blue cornflower, butterfly delphinium and sky blue twisted willow are featured along with a beautiful handmade rocking horse. So giddy on up to the lobby at Crown Towers!

Welcome to our new blog!

Spring is in full flight  at Tribal Rose……..The Spring racing season has begun and that means Lily of the Valley is here!

This pretty, sweetly fragranced delight has a heartbreakingly short season so get it while you can……….Otherwise you’ll have to wait a  whole year for another chance.
