Flower in-season

  • Amaryllis (Hippeastrum hybrid)

    The large, exquisite blooms of Amaryllis have made it a popular plant for brightening up dreary winter days. Amaryllis are native to South America and grow from a bulb. When blooming is finished enjoy the plant for its attractive foliage. It is possible to get the bulb to bloom again…

  • Amaryllis (Hippeastrum hybrid)

    Amaryllis are a familiar winter-season potted plant but the flowers are also great for cut arrangements. Their bold size and bloom color make an amazing focal point for cut bouquets. Create a dramatic effect by using a few single stems in a tall vase. Amaryllis blooms symbolize pride…

  • Anthurium Indoors (Anthurium species)

    Anthurium bring the beauty of lush, green foliage to any room, with little care. An added bonus are the large, interesting blooms that look as if someone painted a leaf with glossy enamel! The blooms make for long lasting cut flowers, but be cautious of the sap, which can cause skin…

  • Florist Azalea (Azalea )

    Azaleas are popular in gardens throughout the world for their glossy foliage and eye-catching clusters of funnel-like blooms. These same features in Florist Azaleas make them a wonderful choice for instantly brightening any room as a houseplant! May bloom up to six weeks indoors!

  • Azalea Tree (Azalea hybrid)

    All of the great features prized in traditional Florist Azaleas but with a twist. Tree Azaleas provide the same glossy foliage and lush, colorful blooms as regular Azaleas but on a plant that has been groomed into a small tree form. A wonderful gift idea for gardening friends who…

  • Baby's Tears Indoors (Soleirolia soleirolii)

    From a distance Baby’s Tears could easily be confused for moss, its low habit and dense mat of dainty little leaves cover the ground like a carpet. Its delicate charm conceals a surprisingly rugged plant. Baby’s tears grow very quickly, and look charming trailing over the edge of…

  • Begonia Rieger (Begonia x hiemalis)

    Rieger begonias are a cross between tuberous and wax begonias. The result is beautiful glossy foliage with an abundance of dainty flowers. The blooms are an interesting combination of single and double-petaled flowers all produced on the same plant. Adds color and cheer to any room…

  • Boston Fern (Nephrolepis exaltata)

    Boston Ferns are a top houseplant choice for their lush foliage that looks great with any décor. They thrive on humidity, so daily misting in winter months and a gravel and water-filled saucer beneath the pot in warmer months are highly recommended.

  • Bromeliad / Guzmania

    Scientifically Bromeliads come from broad range of genus with wide ranging habits and sizes. In the houseplant category, Bromeliad usually refers to plants that seem to grow on air, clinging to rocky surfaces or bits of moss and wood. These types need good air circulation and warm…

  • Cabbage (Ornamental), Brassica oleracea

    This ruffled, ornamental version of edible cabbage is a great way to bring color and variety to arrangements. The substantial foliage adds mass to a large bouquets or weight when used at the base of an arrangement. Wonderful for very modern, non-traditional floral creations. Cabbage…
