Best of Boston

2006 Best Florist, West

Winston Flowers & Garden

Winston’s Newton store feels more like a mom-and-pop shop than the Boston area florist’s biggest location. The mind-boggling array of blooms on offer includes roses, hydrangeas, peonies, calla lilies, and arty, twisted sea grass. And the resourceful, creative staffers will be eager to help you, once you’re done staring slack-jawed at the symphony of colors.
