Our Roots

Growing up in Greece, my grandfather was a professional flower grower, and a love of all things green was instilled in me at a young age. I followed in his footsteps, earning a doctoral degree in horticulture while gaining valuable experience in European horticultural meccas such as Holland, Switzerland, Spain, and Italy. Soon after, my wife and I brought our shared love for growing plants to the United States.

In 1982, we purchased The Flower Source, which at the time was a wholesale rose supply business. As the community of Germantown was itself beginnning to blossom, many new homeowners came to us looking for flowers and plants. In response to this explosive growth and to meet a burgeoning need in the community, we opened a small retail business.

Whether you’re looking for fresh flowers, indoor tropical plants, landscape plants, shrubs and trees, or a full range of other gardening needs, you’ll find it here – along with experienced people who know the answers to your questions and provide you with the high level service you deserve.
Since everyone loves flowers, why not raise some green for your school, church, or other civic group with the Flower Source fundraising program. We’ll help you design, plan and organize a succesful program around Christmas, Easter, Mother’s Day, spring season, or other special event. Contact me for more information at the above number.
No matter the season, I invite you to stop by The Flower Source and see for yourself what’s growing on!
