Strelitzia Flower Company

Welcome to 
Strelitzia Flower Co.

We’re here in Davis, CA with Tish, head designer of Strelitzia Flower Company.  

   “Hi, my name is Tish, and I’m the head designer as well as our wedding coordinator.  I’ve been with this company for a little over five years and have been in this industry for twenty years.  Strelitzia Flower Company has been in business for over forty-five years here in Davis.  We are a retail shop as well as wholesale.  We also do wholesale to the public—so we’re a little bit different than most flower shops.  We have a staff of twenty plus employees and we’re very busy, open seven days a week and delivering six days a week.”
  ​  ​  ​  
   “For me, it all started with a friend actually.  I went through ROP which is on the job training, at age fourteen at a flower shop.  I was super shy and didn’t talk to anyone.  Once I got into flowers I got comfortable, and I was a manager by the time I was seventeen.  My passion for flowers grew from there. 
    “I really enjoy the diversity of experiences that are a part of each day.  We make the arrangements and get them delivered, which brightens someone’s day.  My work is never boring-always eventful! 
    “We offer a wide assortment of California grown flowers which our customers appreciate.  We go directly to the farms to pick up flowers, so we know everything is as fresh as possible.  I really love the different varieties of flowers that we get in and how the selection changes when seasons change.  Dahlias, lisianthus, oriental lilies, and the double rose lilies are just coming out right now.
    “We also import roses from Ecuador and Colombia.  Normally we get 60cm roses which are very tall with huge heads.  They have a lot more petals, are fuller, and more open like a garden rose. They come in so many varieties and colors-soft peach, burgundy, lavender, white, and more.  Roses have the most diverse colors of all the flowers.”

The Magic of Flowers and Plants
Flowers always say, "You're special!"

     There is nothing like the thrill of receiving flowers. You feel special: someone is thinking about you, wanting to lift your spirits and make your day!   
    Flowers touch all our senses, from visual vibrant colors to sweet fragrances.  These powerful elements evoke pleasant memories of past times.  Flowers are timeless, and bring those sweet memories to the present.
    Who isn’t thrilled by the brilliance of color, the richness of life in the garden!  We give plants and flowers  because we love the beauty of the outdoors.  Giving plants and flowers as gifts brings the garden indoors for us to enjoy.
     More to consider:
Flowers can be a gift for anyone.
From son to father, daughter to mom, friend to friend... tell someone they are special with flowers.
    Give flowers at unexpected times.
Giving flowers is a spontaneous act of kindness that will brighten any person’s day.
      Consider flowers as a thank you!  Acknowledge all that someone has done for you by giving them flowers.
     The bottom line: let someone know that you are thinking about them. Flowers always say, “I’m here for you!”

There is a whole world of flowers out there... 
get to know them! 

   Flowers come in a marvelous variety of shapes, sizes, and colors.  Try something new and interesting the next time you order.   By learning the flower choices, you can personalize your arrangements to suit your taste or that of your recipient.  For example, if your mom loves hydrangeas, you will know what to ask for. 

     Ordering from a florist is going to be much easier when you can tell them specifically what flowers you like. The guide that follows represents some of the more common flower choices available in flower shops.  Ask your florist for their expert opinion in picking your flowers.  Working closely with your florist will get you the best results!

Tish Gives An Insider's Perspective on Flowers: 
Strelitzia Flower Company

      [Weddings]  “We are a very busy wedding shop, doing three to four weddings every weekend-everything from small weddings to large grand events.  My favorite wedding was at Grand Island Mansion.  It was in every shade of purple: purple orchids, lisianthus, blackberries, hydrangea, and dendrobium orchids.  It was gorgeous!  We did an amazing archway completely covered in purple.  The designs were very elegant—it was perfect.  The bride absolutely loved everything.”
[Sympathy]  “Personalizing a sympathy arrangement makes the tribute of that person even more special.  If a family wants to include anything in the tribute flowers that was extra special to that person, we can do that.  For instance, if they were a gardener, we could incorporate some garden tools into the design, making it all that more personal.  It’s really about learning what the family is looking to achieve and then creating that.”
[Importance of Flowers]  “It’s always nice to have flowers in your home.  It doesn’t matter if it’s simple or large and grand, flowers will brighten your mood and boost your morale.  It’s such a happy feeling when you come home and there are fresh flowers there to greet you.”
[Favorite Flowers] “My favorite flower is the white oriental lily because of it’s amazing aroma.  Actually, my favorite flower probably changes weekly, just because we get so many different varieties of flowers in throughout the year.  It’s really hard not to love everything that comes in!”
[Romance] “Ladies love to receive flowers as a gift-so learn what her favorite color or flower is and go with that.  You don’t have to break the bank.  A gift of flowers can be as simple as two or three stems.”
