About us

For nearly eight decades, our cherished retail floristry business has flourished under the guiding spirit of Joanne, our revered alter ego and founder. Though the origins of Joanne's journey remain unknown, her legend is evident in the historic lawns of Manuka, Canberra.

When we acquired the business almost 40 years ago, its success was so profound that we couldn't bear to part with the name. Despite not knowing the identity of Joanne, her presence is felt in every petal and arrangement we craft. As our muse and inspiration, Joanne's passion for floristry continues to drive our commitment to excellence and creativity. 

As a family-owned and operated business, our commitment to Joanne's vision runs deep in our roots. We take pride in the personal touch and attention to detail that comes from being part of a close-knit family, ensuring that every arrangement we create reflects not only our expertise but also the warmth and care that comes from generations of floral craftsmanship. Our familial bond infuses every aspect of our business, from our dedicated customer service to our genuine passion for floral artistry. Together, as a family, we honor Joanne's timeless legacy and strive to exceed expectations, one bouquet at a time.

We specialise in curating memorable experiences for weddings of all scales, from intimate gatherings to grand celebrations. With meticulous attention to detail and a flair for creativity, our team transforms each wedding into a stunning visual masterpiece. Whether it's a cozy garden affair or an opulent ballroom extravaganza, we work closely with couples to bring their unique vision to life. From elegant bridal bouquets to breathtaking floral installations, our bespoke designs elevate every aspect of the wedding day, ensuring it's a reflection of the couple's love story. With our expertise and passion for floristry, we take pride in creating unforgettable moments that will be cherished for a lifetime.
