Sunny Chu loves working with flowers. “They are fresh. They change every day, from open to wither. And they are beautiful,” Chu explains. In fact, Chu’s loved flowers for as long as he can remember. “My dad designed many zen garden and parks. He’s my inspiration.” It was because of him that Sunny got into flowers in the first place. “I grew up in my dad’s nursery, and I took a particular interest in landscape architecture when I went to school.”
