About ROSES ARE RED

Florist


Flowers from Roses Are Red are known for long vase life and naturalistic arrangements with the highest quality flowers.

Rose Are Red believes that flowers make a difference and are the perfect gift to celebrate life.  We source only the best quality flowers and follow the most current research to give you the best possible vase life so that your flowers can have the longest vase life possible. We feel that flowers are the focus, design is important but beautiful flowers do not need contrived design that often shortens their vase life. This means our designs typically are done in glass containers and foam is only used in very specific cases (certain sympathy or wedding work that there isn’t a practical way to design  in glass). We focus on simple containers and more naturalistic designs and heavily feature Florida grown foliages.  We are a professional local florist proudly serving Indialantic, Melbourne Beach, Satellite Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Melbourne, Viera, Rockledge, and West Melbourne.  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is ready to assist you when you need flowers for pick up or local delivery.

We are not trying to be all things to all people. We only carry the most awesome blooms. If big box stores carry it, typically we do not unless it is a much higher grade. We focus on some more common flowers that are high grade and very unique flowers that are longer lasting. We occasionally carry shorter lived flowers but you won’t see them on our website, but if you follow us on Facebook or Instagram you’ll see when we have more unusual but shorter vase life seasonal flowers available. Also you can always call to see what is new in that week. Because we do higher grade flowers often we are more expensive than other florists especially national online chains, be we make up for it in incredible vase life. We fully expect our flowers to last a minimum of 7 days but it is far more typical that they last 10+ days with proper care (I at least once a month have someone tell us some of their flowers lasted 3 weeks). Our process includes only sourcing flowers that have continuous cold chain from the farm, hydration treatments, flower food in all buckets and vases from a dosing system we get tested periodically by a lab to make sure is the right concentrate, floral coolers at 35-37 degrees at 80% humidity, and flower food packets with every vase delivery along with care instructions. We also turn our inventory frequently (sometimes flowers we consider unsellable because of age still last 10+ days in our warm display window). These steps typically double the vase life of your flowers over competitors. If you spend the money they should last! Yes our flowers are a bit more than some other places, but they are absolutely premium. Roses are way bigger and last longer, we have stuff no one else in town has. But if you are looking for something cheap that you saw on a national website and want us to price match you are out of luck, we don't do mass market stuff. It also means we don't carry every bloom in every color. Our availability changes constantly (even sometimes during the day) and we source only premium flowers and plants. We strive to make it as close as possible especially in size, color, and overall feel. Sometimes we are out of a particular bloom or that week that flower did not come in at our standards so then we make substitutions with keeping a similar color scheme as our designer’s first priority.  

Owner, Christina Brown has a natural love of plants.  Even as a child she had a flower garden she planted and tended with love. Later that passion led her to get her BA in Horticulture from the University of Florida and to become a Florida State Florist Master Designer. Owning a flower shop fulfills her life long dream of owning a business that allows her to share her love of plants and flowers.  She also speaks at local garden clubs and loves to chat with customers about plants. All of our staff are fairly plant obsessed and very knowledgeable about houseplants in addition to being amazing designers.
