When it comes to bees, City Line Florist is a fan. A major one, in fact. How could we not be? Bees are responsible for pollinating 80% of all flowering plants. That includes the vast majority of our major food crops, the ones we consume on a daily basis. Scientists estimate that one in three bites we eat comes from plants pollinated by bees. Yes, this humble insect is one of the most important creatures on the planet. Read More about Beautiful, Bee-Friendly Flowers
City Line Florist knows that when we send you home with some beautiful flowers---or deliver them to someone else on your behalf---you're faced with a major dilemma . . . Where to put them??
Relax, we got you. It turns out that some flowers truly are better off in certain places over others. Orchids don't mind the subtropical heat of your bathroom, for instance, while a riot of roses do well in a larger space where their fragrance isn't overwhelming. Plants love a sunny spot in the kitchen, while desk gardens are, well, the perfect de-stresser on your desk. Read More about Where To Put Those Fresh New Flowers
One of the most popular things to do in the summertime is to pack up the kids and take off to explore our great country.

Here at City Line Florist, we love to point out what flowers can do for the homes they find themselves in and the people who inhabit them. One of those things is that they can evoke the feeling of a place through the use of blooms specific to that region, as well as colors and textures inspired by its landscape.
