Plus the belief that they are not real flowers thus other magicians dismiss them. If you are truly interested in creating a flower act, here is what I would do. The remaining flower producers in the U.S are Richard Hughes, Abbott's Magic and Owen's Magic. Richard Hughes has a trick catalog on disc. Send for it, it is a demo of his flower effects, not a show. Check out Abbott's Catalog and/or contact Greg Bordner at Abbott's and see what they still offer. Owen's magic sells a Garden of Flowers act, and Abbott's use to have a version as well. These were built around a Trellis as the center piece. As you are a fully functioning company, I see not reason why you should not take a business trip or two to meet with Richard Hughes and Abbott's to research what they can offer in this regard. As far as Acts go in my era, I only remember seeing Harry Blackstone Jr. present his flower act while I was at some magic conventions. I also seen a very young magician present an act of several Botania's. It was very effective and has stood out in my memory all these years. I agree that audiences love color and action in the props. Some of the success of Feather Flower acts is that every production is an applause cue for the audience. Goldfinger and Dove use to do a single flower production in their act, ending with only a bouquet of spring flowers at the end. Very nice routine. [/quote]
