  • The Catalina package is a showcase of the foliage native to the rare archipelago ecology of California’s Channel Islands. Isolated from the mainland of our golden state, these majestic plants have evolved and adapted over centuries to withstand prolonged dry heat, relentless harsh winds, and the sprays of salt water from their perches on exposed rocky cliffs.

    The Catalina box is manna for butterfly metamorphosis. As buckwheat, purple verbena and daisy adapt to the seasons, the unique Catalina perfume of soft spicy peppermint creates a simultaneous aura of vivacity and cozy comfort.
