You can define success in myriad ways, but for us, it's supplying local florists with the freshest cut-flowers -and for over 80 years. Since 1928 we've put in the blood, sweat, and tears to get flowers from our trusted Farms to where you are,  and with the customer service you deserve.

We moved from DC's famous I Street Corridor in the 1970s to the Flower Market on Eckington Place NE, Washington, DC, where we called "home" for over 30 years.  We've recently relocated to our current address at 5001 Forbes Blvd, Suite A, Lanham MD.  This new location boasts a state-of-the-art 6000 SqFt cooler. Our team of experienced Sales Representatives are happy to help source and hand-select flowers and greens.  Come visit us at our expansive new location in Lanham! Contact us here!
