Flower delivery in Los Angeles
You won’t find run-of-the-mill creations here: Instead of relying on generic filler flowers, Floom sources high-quality arrangements from local florists. Options vary by the day and zip code, but on a recent search, we found everything from a succulent terrarium to orange calla lilies inside a glass bowl. The hand-written card that accompanies every order is a nice touch, too. Accidentally forgot a major birthday and looking for somewhere that does same-day delivery? Now worries. As long as you order by 1pm, the arrangement will arrive on the recipient’s doorstep by 5pm. Phew.
Easy access to the 99-year-old Original Los Angeles Flower Market—the largest in the country—means Southern California florists have a leg up. BloomNation harnesses that local expertise by connecting customers to florists in their area. Just put in your zip code on the company’s website to see a list of floral designs available near you. Plus, last-minute gift-givers can even filter by same-day delivery (and avoid any dashing around).

Last year BloomThat were acquired by FTD (who also run ProFlowers), but other than a website change, little has changed in their service. Thankfully. Plus BloomThat customers get 20 per cent off an order. While this online florist has always offered a smaller range than most, it's specially curated and the options are stunning. Each order comes with the option of adding a personalised gift message too.
For more than four decades, Dave’s Flowers has been serving some of LA’s most discerning clients, from the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to the Hollywood Bowl and Los Angeles Philharmonic. The knowledgeable staff strives to accommodate last-minute orders (get same-day delivery if your order before 2pm) and will work with any budget. Pick from the extensive selection of flowers (they carry exotics, succulents and orchids along with super fresh cut blossoms) and be amazed by the beautiful arrangement the talented staff puts together at a moment’s notice.
The bouquets at this popular Mid-City flower shop lean toward traditional styles, meaning it's perfect for gifting a little bit of elegance. Customers can order everything from a standard bouquet of red roses to extravagant topiaries online or visit the storefront to place a custom order. Even better, the French Florist will deliver to 200 zip codes spread throughout the greater Los Angeles area—as far away as Topanga Canyon, Van Nuys and Pasadena.
Procrastinating gifters, rejoice: From You Flowers include an extensive selection of blooms available for same-day delivery at bargain prices. So the designs aren’t as exotic or fancy as other places—the loving (if laidback) sentiment remains the same.
This 19-year-old company was thinking about the farm-to-table movement before most of its competitors. First off, they work directly with growers to ensure the flowers are freshly cut and each bouquet is assembled by hand. Thanks to the detailed approach, any bouquets sold by ProFlowers are subject to a strict seven-step test of quality. Plus, if you're not sure what you're looking for, there's a massive selection that includes everything from bonsai trees to floral wreaths to delicate orchids. Bloomin' lovely.
The LA outpost of this New York mainstay (it was founded there in 1998) has become an Eastside favorite for the florally inclined. Need something unusual? Try one of their cool vessels—a silver Champagne bucket or a window box made from welded stainless steel, perhaps. Or grab a submerged flower or leaf for an esoteric, high-impact gift. Plus, they’re open until 8pm most nights, so you can easily pick up a last-minute arrangement, and if you order before 10am you can have same-day delivery.
Although this veteran company has been conquering the market for more than 80 years, it’s not your grandma’s flower delivery. Filter your search by preferred color, occasion, price, delivery date or any other category you can dream up. Great for seasonal arrangements to brighten up your Christmas, Hannukah or Thanksgiving, most orders placed before 3pm are eligible for same-day delivery.
It is easy being green when you order flowers from this eco-friendly online retailer. The Bouqs Co sources its blooms directly from farms, effectively cutting out the middleman and ensuring its arrangements arrive fresh. The farm-to-table styles come with a little information about the farmer who harvested the flowers, while the artisan styles are handcrafted and hand-delivered by a florist in your area.
