La Nola Smith is Leimert Park's extraordinary stylist!

Every weekend morning, residents of the LA Leimert Park get to see an extraordinary stylist. La Nola Smith is a spoken-word artist, in-home healthcare aide, and mother. She is also the owner and sole employee of South Central Succs.

La Nola Smith opens the outdoor succulent arrangement shop at 9 a.m. every Saturday and Sunday. It remains open until at least 6 p.m. She greets and welcomes her loyal customers from the community at the arrangement every weekend. She has a dozen colorful, intricately assembled succulent arrangements. All the pieces are for sale, and she sets them together by herself.

The succulent arrangement has cactus plants surrounded by recycled accents such as shiny broken glass, loose beads, and whimsical animal figurines. The pots and planters are unique, bright, and colorful. Smith has flower pots wrapped in bedazzled denim skirts, craft-store pom-poms, to upcycled mugs and teapots.
