Flower spotlight: anemone

Anemones might make you think of clownfish and crashing waves, but the name also belongs to a flower in the buttercup family. With wide petals on delicate, wiry stems, anemones are some of the earliest perennials to grace gardens each year. Also known as windflowers, they feature soft shades of white with occasional touches of purple and pink.

Tips to help cut flowers last longer

Getting flowers from a loved one on a special occasion — like an anniversary, graduation, birthday, or holiday — is always a beautiful thing that brings smiles to many faces. But have you ever felt a little sad when that beautiful bouquet starts to show signs of wilting? We want to hold on to fresh flowers as long as possible, so we research the internet and compiled a list of things to try at home.

Flower spotlight: stock

Stock flowers may sound like a generic name for a generic bloom, but these statuesque beauties are anything but. Known as brompton stock, gillyflower, hoary stock, and ten-week stock, these fun florets are a long-time favorite of gardeners and floral designers.

Lingering impact of COVID-19 on florists

COVID-19 brought major changes to every industry last year, and many are still feeling the lingering effects. The floral industry is no exception. As demand for flowers ramps back up due to events like holidays, proms, and graduations to name a few, we’re still navigating flower shortages and shipping delays.
