Every spring and summer, the Rogue Valley bursts to life with a rainbow of vibrant flowers. Green fields are covered in hues of brightly colored red, orange, yellow, purple and pink blooms — an amazing sight to behold.
But sometimes, you want to take that beauty home with you!
Fortunately, Southern Oregon has numerous florists who have access to beautiful, locally-sourced flowers that you can delight in any time of year. Whether you want to get a bouquet for a friend, or flowers for yourself, these local florists will be able to help.
Bee Sweet Blooms
Located on Phoenix’s main road, Bee Sweet Blooms is owned by Deanna Mulaskey. She is a local floral designer who has worked in the industry for over ten years, and her passion for flowers is evident in every bouquet.
Over the years, she has learned the best practices when it comes to sustainability, flower production and upcycling. She also supports local organic flower farmers as much as possible. Bee Sweet Blooms is a new addition to the Rogue Valley’s floral scene, but their welcoming shop is a wonderland of beautiful blooms just waiting to be discovered.
Wizard’s Way Flower Farm
You will find lovely seasonable and sustainable flowers at Wizard’s Way Flower Farm in Ashland. To give back to the soil which provides such amazing flowers, Wizard’s Way follows organic practices, and uses organic inputs when available. They offer fresh-cut bouquets from their farm stand, and sell flowers by the bucket and to florists.
Carly, the owner-operator, has a B.S. in Horticulture, specializing in Ecological and Sustainable Practices, from Oregon State University. She puts that knowledge to use as she grows and cares for her flowers. When you get fresh blooms from Wizard’s Way, you are supporting a healthier ecological community and a budding Southern Oregon business.
The pretty blooms you will discover at ZuZu’s Petals in Jacksonville come from their family farm in Southern Oregon. From seeds to full-grown flowers, the owners of ZuZu’s Petals take great care of their plants.
The seeds start in the greenhouse using an organic compost blend, which guarantees a strong and healthy beginning to the growing process. The flowers are then hand transplanted into the fields where they flourish. ZuZu’s Petals harvests, arranges and delivers the fresh flowers, handling the entire process with care and compassion.
Le Mera Gardens
Located in the heart of the Rogue Valley, Le Mera Gardens grows approximately ten acres of seasonal, specialty cut flowers, foliage, ornamental berries, branches and herbs. They grow a variety of beautiful plants, flowers, and more, that everyone will love. Their farm is USDA certified organic, bee friendly and salmon safe.
Joan Ewer Thorndike started farming flowers at Le Mera Gardens in 1992. After she married her husband and moved to Southern Oregon, she was surprised to find there wasn’t much of a flower culture in the Rogue Valley. Flowers were treated as a luxury, and Joan wanted to change that. She began her journey of ensuring fresh flowers were widely accessible and a source of joy.
