Rowdy Poppy – Kim Zimmerman
At Rowdy Poppy, we’re proud renegades in the floral industry.
We’re a micro farm and a floral-design house built from the garden up. We believe community (and flowers) feed the soul.
As a queer, woman-owned business, we empower and support those around us by fighting for what we believe in through social justice and sustainability. Our micro farm allows us to be local, seasonal, and sustainable, so we can grow flowers that look good and do good.
We pride ourselves on offering floral design services to meet a breadth of budgets, including elopement packages and pick-up options all the way to full service events. With original and avant-garde designs, we connect life’s most special moments back to the beauty of nature.
How would you describe your floral design style?
We are always inspired by what’s happening in nature at that moment, so seasonality and place inform our designs. I’d say our style is non-traditional, organic, natural, detail-highlighting, and is a vehicle for curious exploration.
Where did you grow up? How long have you been in Colorado?
I grew up in rural North Carolina and Virginia, then lived in South Carolina and Georgia for many years before moving to Rollinsville, CO in 2005.
Sweet or Salty?
Give me salty, briny, vinegar-y any day!
Favorite genre to read?
I’m really getting into biographies lately. I think it’s pretty fascinating to learn people’s backstories.
Just one?! I’m a sucker for fun comedies and Melissa McCarthy, so I’ll go with “The Heat”
Favorite TV show at the moment?
Definitely a tie between “Yellowjackets” and “Ted Lasso.” It’s a balance, right?
Favorite kind of music/ favorite artist?
I’ll always be a sucker for Tori Amos and Florence + the Machine but give me some Motown any day.
What do you like to do in your free time when you’re not working?
There’s a reason people love Colorado (myself included) and that’s usually because of nature. Unsurprisingly, I love hiking with my doggo, gardening, and sitting on porches with friends and good cider.
