2003 Best Florist

Artemisia Floral Studio

Floral innovation is in full bloom at Artemisia, the downtown showcase for arrangements that run from delicately tied bundles of tiny daisies to huge, sweeping bunches of irises, roses, and lilies. Exquisite, spare designs—say, planted hyacinths, pussywillows, and roses—are a specialty. But the real kicker here is the personal service, which includes plenty of one-on-one time with the florally proficient employees.
