Tallahassee Florist | Local Grown Flowers |



Have you ever wondered where your flowers come from? Cut flowers are shipped from all over the world. Ecuador, Columbia, Holland, and more.
Here at A Country Rose we receive our flowers from all of the above. However we are moving toward a more sustainable source for our flowers. Three years ago we started a small flower farm in Wakulla County and have been learning and experimenting a bunch. This is our first year of true production and we want to share with you what we have accomplished. We have certainty not arrived and all our flowers are not locally sourced, yet we are moving toward that model slowly.
Our farm is using organic style gardening practices,  so all the flowers that we use are free from harsh chemicals. At this time we are growing, zinnias, cornflower, dianthus, sunflowers, celosia, coleus, yarrow, ageratum, hollyhocks, liatris, hydrangea, gladiolus, agastache, astilbe, snapdragons, queen anns lace, torch lilies, and eucalyptus. We are adding daily to our selection.
Here are a few of our new designs that I know you will enjoy. All made with our local grown fresh flowers.

Nestled among acres of rolling hills, majestic oaks, and native flowering trees, the charming manor is now a perfect wedding backdrop. The Southwood House can accommodate up to a 100 person stand-up cocktail heavy appetizer reception inside the house, but will accept events as large as 250 guests, making it ideal for moderately sized weddings.
