About Us

Welcome to Sassafras Shoppe

At Sassafras Shoppe we have an original collection of indoor and outdoor plants, orchids, succulents, floral arrangements, pots and urns, and many more unique treasures and gifts. Every item is hand picked or hand made.  Both owners Ronnie Corbett and Pami Ozaki worked at the original Sassafras Nursery owned by the late extraordinarily innovative and highly respected Pamela Ingram.

Along with their Interior Designer Hope Shelley, who has a long list of clients herself, they decorate for special events such as weddings, garden parties, birthday parties, holiday events, Bah Mitzvahs, and Bat Mitzvahs.

Ronnie and Pami each have their own landscape company, and have been in the landscaping business for over 30 years. Between the two of them, they have designed and installed over 400 gardens in the Los Angeles area since 1989. Some of their clients include Madonna, Martin Short, Lucy Lui, Cher, Tom and Rita Hanks, Jon and Barbara Avnet, Tom and Ann-Marie Newman, Sela Ward, Rob and Michelle Reiner, Jerry and Janet Zucker, the late Richard Zanuck, Lilli Zanuck, and a host of others. 

Thus, they also offer Landscape Design & Installation Services. They are well versed in drought tolerant landscapes, Japanese, English, Italian, French, and Balinese gardens; plus Mediterranean, tropical, subtropical landscapes and water gardens.  They design both traditional and modern gardens, and also children's play areas, vegetable gardens, orchards and even indoor orangeries.  

In a collaborative effort, to create Sassafras Shoppe, Ronnie, Pami and Hope decided to hone in on their skills and engage in what they love to do, offering you the best in Orchid and Succulent Arrangements, Garden Decor, Potted Perennials, Floral Creations, Fairy and Miniature Gardens, growing herbs, etc.  All this in a magical surrounding that includes koi swimming and turtles sunning, soft music, palm and ficus trees, and plenty of garden books available for reading. They offer a sacred place to gather, sit at a table and read, gaze at the turtle pond, or just shop for treasures.    

 Ronnie, Pami, & Hope welcome you to their world.
