Crimson Horticultural Rarities
In Temescal alley off 49th Street. You’ll find lots of succulents, air plants, and naturally scented candles & fragrances. Temescal alley in general is a favorite local haunt for its adorable, tiny shoe-box/hole-in the wall shops. Good place to gift-shop for something unique.
Check out the beautiful living plant creations, ceramics, and amazing horticulture designs from around the bay at this cute little gem of a shop. Hop on next door for a cup of coffee and explore Berkeley and Oakland from there!
Florist & nursery featuring unusual indoor plants, gifts & arrangements in a darkly stylish space.
Crimson is the first shop in "Temescal Alley" - a very cool collection of boutiques in Oakland. Right near some excellent restaurants, too! Worth spending a morning or afternoon checking out this neighborhood.

“My favorite spot nearby for day drinking (during non-COVID times)! The spacious beer garden is the best place for sitting outside on a lovely day! Great beer!!”
“Cute taproom serving their beer, plus some other locals. Small bites menu that’s yummy, but a bit pricey. Really beautiful aesthetic – very airy and filled with plants. They make lots of fun / interesting beers, unlike most other local breweries – which aren’t typically my thing. ”
