It sure is hot in St. Louis- close to 100 degrees outside and the humidity is unbearable. Yet this is one of my favorite times of the year, because locally grown flowers are available. I see hundreds of flowers a day, and some of the nicest ones come from right here in Missouri. These flowers are up there with the mass produced South American flowers or the earthy flowers of California. Sunflowers, Black Eyed Susans, Zinnias, Dianthis, Mint, Gladiolas, and my personal favorite-- Coxcomb. All of these flowers are so much fun to work with, and most of them are unique to this time of year. But the best thing about using these flowers is supporting local flower farms. Kirkwood Florist would love to design you a beautiful custom bouquet made of purely Missouri grown flowers. Please give us a call today.
