Colombia is the largest flower cultivator for the US flower market, claiming 70 percent of the industry. According to Smithsonian.com, “If you buy a bouquet in a supermarket, big-box store or airport kiosk, it probably came from the Bogotá savanna.” That also held true for our online flower deliveries — many of our ordered bouquets came marked with a sticker or stamp that said, “Product of Colombia.” (Others arrived unmarked, with no indication of origin.) Just a 3-hour flight from Miami, Colombia has the perfect climate for year-round flower growth and farming, and annually ships more than $1 billion in blossoms.
When we looked at Yelp and Better Business Bureau reviews for our remaining contenders, we found the same complaint again and again: Flowers never arrived, and the person ordering them had no idea until they called to check if their intended recipient liked them. To help avoid some seriously awkward phone calls, we made sure all remaining companies offered online tracking. This lets you monitor, for yourself, whether your bouquet has been delivered.
Other floral sites ship your bouquet in a box and leave it for your recipient to trim and arrange.
