My name is Patti Fowler. I own Flowerama of America in Pittsburgh. The thing I enjoy the most about being a florist is truly the passion that I have for the flowers. 

When you get to know the growers that you’re buying from, some of the most beautiful fresh blooms are available fifty-two weeks of the year now. 

Local flowers from local growers. Ranunculus from Costa Rica. Gerbera daisies from Canada. Roses from Ecuador. Italian ruskis from Italy. A one-of-a-kind bouquet gives me the ability to use the blooms that are looking the most fabulous that day. 

One of the best parts of being a florist is the trust to shine for our clients and to give people something that truly is floral art. Watching it go out the door is complete excitement.
