Our Presenter


Ron Morgan is the most sought-after and well-recognized floral designer in the United States. He has dazzled lecture and garden club audiences for over twenty years with his wit, knowledge and unparalleled creative talents. Through his imaginative use of flowers, fruits, vegetables and unusual items, he transforms the ordinary into the exquisite, artfully arranging his striking materials into masterpieces. His tablescapes are legendary for their creativity, elegance and visual impact.

Ron Morgan’s career in floral design began at age ten, when he won his first flower show competitions in San Joaquin County, California. Over the course of his extensive career, he has designed window displays for Harrod’s and David Jones, opened retail floral and antique shops, consulted as an interior designer, conducted flower arranging classes and, most importantly, become a highly sought-after speaker at garden club events around the world. He now lives in Alameda, California, and devotes most of his creative energies to the garden club lecture circuit. He has published four books to date.
