Wonderful staff at Brant Florist!

Have one of our expert staff at Brant Florist design a breath-taking flower arrangement for you, or create your own arrangement from our vast selection of fresh-cut flowers. Choose from roses, orchids, lilies, tropical flowers – white, red, and any colour in between!

At Brant Florist, one of our many specialties is funeral and sympathy flowers. Some may wonder, what is the difference? Funeral flowers serve as a tribute to the deceased at the funeral, creating a background of warmth and beauty which adds to the dignity and consolation of the service. Sympathy flowers on the other hand, are addressed and sent directly to a loved one of the deceased. Know that it is never too late to send flowers! A nice gesture is to send flowers to the home a period of time after the funeral to remind those grieving that you are still thinking of them and their loss.

How much should you spend on flowers?

It’s easier than ever to order flowers online, but when you want assurance the flowers you order will be the best quality, contact Brant Florist in Burlington.

Unfortunately, there are thousands of deceptive florist websites that promise wonderful images for $19.95 or $29.95. Millions are drawn in by the low prices and beautiful images that are often copied from other websites. But what do you actually get?

Sometimes nothing is actually delivered, or the bouquet is small, shabby, sparse and even old. Adjustments and refunds never come. Only phone messages and emails are accepted.

Buyer beware — always check the florist’s reputation and reviews.

For quality flowers and excellent customer service, deal with a real florist with an actual storefront. Since 1961, the staff at locally owned and operated Brant Florist have been pouring their hearts and talents into creating gorgeous flower arrangements that are guaranteed.

The phony, deceptive websites have only an 800 number and a lot of wordy promises. Both the Toronto Star’s consumer advocate reporter and the CBC television program Marketplace have featured the website bloomex.ca as one such floral website that promises much more than it actually delivers.

If the price looks too good to be true, it usually is, and that’s especially true with flowers. The average florist order for delivery is in the $60 to $95 range. Smaller bouquets can be delivered for less, and if you want a larger, more impressive gift, expect to pay more than $100. Florists fill orders based on the amount of money on the order; the image is a guide only.

Brant Florist has received a Readers’ Choice Award every year for the past 21 years for its outstanding, personalized service and quality products.

5 New Flowers You Shouldn’t Miss This Season

Peonies, garden roses, and dahlias get a lot of time in the spotlight and while we adore those popular blooms just as much as the next girl, some of the lesser-known wedding flowers are definitely worth talking about.

Peonies, marigolds, garden roses, zinnias and dahlias got a lot of spotlight in the garden, now it’s a perfect time to talk about few new flowers that are worth talking about. No matter whether you are amateur or a specialist to growing flowers, you can easily grow these beautiful flowers and explore its beauty. They are –

  • Ptilotus : I know it’s pretty tough to call out the name, but don’t worry you can ask for the flower with it’s another known name and i.e. lamb’s tail. The beautiful feathery flowers will surely remind you of celosia flowers, and it’s quite obvious as they are members of Amaranthaceae family. This flower is a tender perennial in zones 9-11, however almost all gardeners grow it from seed. The silvery foliage is evidence to the drought tolerance of this xeriscape favorite, so it’s a request that overwaters your plants. Just like other plants that grow in desserts, the lamb’s tail even require sun and loose soil.
  • Nemophila : Another name in the list of is Nemophila. There are various varieties of like “Baby Blue Eyes”, “Total Eclipse”, “Five Spot” and many more. The Baby Blue Eyes variety is the showiest that carries the masses of blue early summer blossoms with white centers. However, don’t forget the trendy black flowers known as Total Eclipse. Then next comes Five Spot which is another essential and cute quirky nemiphila favorite – it is a white flower with purple splotch.
    The three well-known varieties discussed create excellent ground covers particularly in areas with moist soil.
  • Viscaria : In the event when you cut these elegant attractive flowers for the vase you will easily identify why this 12-inch plant is named as catchfly as the sap is quite sticky. The actual blue essence of this five-petaled annual can’t be beaten, but the pink, white, red, and lavender types are lovely as well. But what when the temperatures rise? Will the fade? No the hardy annual won’t fade. You can plant the flower in full sun and water at the time when the soil dries out.
  • Clarkia : The clarkia flowers are even known by the name ‘mountain garland’ or ‘farewell-to-spring’. These most beautiful native wild cup-shaped flowers have petals that are reminiscent of crepe paper. It proves the garland name as they look lovely when the flower spikes are easy to fashion into crowns. Plus they start to bloom in the late spring, so they are named as ‘farewell-to-spring’. The flours are usually seen in the combination of these colors – red, magenta, hot pink and lavender. Vivid, intense, and undeniably beautiful, these wildflowers are one of the showiest in the meadows!
  • Rhodochiton : Vertical flowers are the unique flowers every Gardner would love to see in his garden and the purple bell is one such flower. Not just like the annual vines, that outgrow trellis before summer, purple bell vine has pretty slow growing, and it can be pruned to keep up a tidy shape. They usually take more than a month to grow from a seed. Hence, the ideal option is to go with transplants if you live in cold climate. You can site the bell with little sunny spot and keep it moist throughout the growth.

Such amazing flowers, right? I know you loved them as much as I adored them. Use these beautiful flowers at various places, it can be wedding too.
