OUR PHILOSOPHY

At Long Stems, we believe that there is something inherently personal and extraordinary about flowers. They have come to signify an endless array of sentiments and occasions, and hold significance in nearly every life experience. Whether used to express feelings of love, jubilation, thanks, care, or condolences, flowers have become an enduring source of beauty and emotion in our lives.  
Our unique approach to designing stems from a deep appreciation for the life of each flower and plant, a horticultural background that not only makes our staff highly knowledgeable, but also allows us to find more unusual seasonal selections. Your Long Stems arrangements will always  be distinctive and exceptional,  and with our gracious and easygoing family farmers market atmosphere, you will not only enjoy your flowers, but the entire process along the way.
