Meet A Few Staff Members at Lilygrass

If you’ve ever called our shop, dropped by to pick up a bouquet and browse our gift shop or we delivered to you, you know that we have some of the friendliest staff members you’ll ever meet (both the human and canine kind).

But you may not know all of our staff, so we thought we’d introduce you to some of them.

Flower spotlight: Orchids

Orchids are one of the most delicate flowers with a uniquely diverse aesthetic. Though the smaller sizes are more common, their size depends entirely upon their species. The giant orchid can reach up to 200 pounds in weight, while the smallest variety only reaches two millimeters in size. When the larger varieties grow in clusters they can reach up to one ton, though that’s not typically the kind of orchid you’ll find at a flower shop!

Tips for Valentine’s Day flowers and gifts

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about surprising that special someone with flowers and gifts to make them smile. Flowers are always a nice surprise, but you can also get creative and include a little something extra for your sweetheart.

Classic and creative flowers

Why are flowers so expensive?

Giving flowers to others is a centuries-old tradition throughout the world. We send flowers to express love, happiness, sympathy, regret, and so much more. Flowers speak a powerful language between friends, family, and loved ones.

Flower prices vary greatly depending on bloom type, style, design, size, harvest location, and many other factors. What most people do not fully realize, however, is why and how floral arrangements can be so expensive.

Flower spotlight: daisies

Daisies are special because they have the ability to make one think of warm summer sunshine even on the coldest days. Even though daisies come in a variety of colors and shapes, the “white chrysanthemum daisy” is generally the most visible.

But there are many types of daisies! From the chrysanthemum daisy to the Gerbera daisy to the the daisy pom and so on, they can be found in colors ranging from whites, yellows, reds, pinks, purples, oranges and even browns.  Almost every color of the rainbow is represented.
