With my Dad and Grandfather being Landscape Architects and both creators of botanical gardens, you can imagine I'm drawn to the variety and special qualities of flowers. With a flower business, it makes sense to have classic, go-to flowers. And even our 'standards' have distinctive aspects to them. Also, we augment the year-round varieties with seasonal flowers that only come around every so often, or once a year.
Here are some of our favorites year-round:
Delightful 'Free Spirit' Roses - we have these on our standing order. They open like a sunset, and each rose has slightly different shades, from deep pinks sometimes on the outer guard petals, to oranges, to apricots, to pale yellow. And as it matures, it opens large, and sometimes the colors fade into softer sunrise colors. Long-lasting, too!
Sunny Sunflowers: While not as distinctive in their availability or style, they are a statement flower sure to please. Every once in a while (like the dead of winter when we need them most), they aren't as easy to come by. And we order them in every week so that you can make a bold, happy statement!
Soft Garden Roses and 'Hearts' Roses: While we also carry the classic looking roses, Garden Roses have more fragrance, and have the soft textures and appeals of Peonies while being available most of the year round.
And here are a few that only come to us once in a while:
Incredible 'Rose Lilies' (double versions) and Bi-color Oriental Lilies: Fragrant, like stargazers, the textures and variety options are wonderful - we carry these varieties when we can, and are always checking with our growers to know when new varieties come out:
Peonies: Nostalgic, fleeting seasons, glorious... Did you know they come in so many different colors, especially when they're in season?!
If you'd like notifications when we have Peonies available, or what to know more about their seasons, click here to sign up!
Helleborus: Delightful, long-lasting garden flowers (as long as the water is clean and clear)
Parrot Tulips: Shown here after about a week, or more, completely open. An incredible flower!
And then of course, we are always looking for creative ways to design and display them. Again, we have our classic designs on our website, and every week, if you were perched up on top of our shelves, you'd see designs that might not ever be created again!
