About Your Local Succulent Designer

Spreading joy through plants

Hi! I'm Ileana, but you can call me Ily. :)

I am the Designer, Creative Director, and Founder of Ily the Plant Lady. Ily the Plant Lady sprouted in a small apartment patio with me making arrangements from cuttings graciously gifted from neighbors and friends. What began as a fun creative outlet has now transformed into the leading Succulent Designer in the city of Chula Vista & greater San Diego area. Since 2020, I've committed to providing my clients with the finest quality arrangements and events. I love using cute, unique, whimsy, and chic planters as vessels to arrange my designs in. Each item is always made to order to ensure the best and freshest succulents are used. Custom orders are always welcomed and highly encouraged! I go above and beyond for my clients to make sure they love their arrangements/designs  and leave my workshops happy. When I'm not busy playing around in the dirt, you can find me spending time with my husband, kiddos, and our two dogs, Tyson and Zumi.
