Bitterroot Flower Shop

In Victorian times, giving a bouquet of flowers was an old-school version of sending a text message, and each flower had a specific meaning. Daisies indicated the sender’s loyal love and innocence. Daylilies were flirty. Gardenias said “you’re lovely.” Striped carnations meant “Sorry, maybe some other time.” Azaleas said, “Take care of yourself for me.” When words just aren’t enough, you can express a thousand sentiments with the array of bouquets from Bitterroot Flower Shop. The florist offers delivery, custom designs and big-scale event services, and it’s been a Missoula favorite since it opened its Higgins Avenue location in 1946. If you’re looking for a little something to suit any occasion, we’d suggest the “Growler for Two,” which is a glass growler filled with fresh blooms and tagged with a gift certificate for Draught Works. If we had to translate that one for the Victorians, we’d say it means that a true-blue Missoulian loves you. Bitterroot Flower Shop • 811 S. Higgins Ave • 542-0309 •
