Despite its concrete exterior, Los Angeles is a veritable garden of florists and other sundry flower options. Find an exotic assortment of Mother’s Day blooms at these local flower shops. And as with the sending of flowers on any holiday, be sure to arrange for your arrangements early.
Los Angeles Flower District: This downtown wholesale flower market has the largest selection of flowers and flower supplies on the west coast and is thus a prime DIY option for making your own fabulous bouquet. Just like mama taught you, home-made gifts always have a special appeal, and you’ll save a pretty penny throwing a big, lush arrangement together on your own. Admission to the Los Angeles Flower District is $2. Get there early, (like 6 a.m. early), for the best selection.
