At Floral Design Institute, the study of post harvest physiology is very important and on-going.  In addition to our own research, we review and test all research and opinions in the industry.  With the knowledge, tools, treatment processes, flower foods and long the lasting cultivars available today, there simply is no reason that you cannot have wonderful long lasting flowers.


Welcome to our Flower Library.  In these pages you will find the most popular flowers and foliages used in floral design.  We have pictured and detailed the common and botanical names of each flower along with its seasonal availability and colors.  You may search for a flower by name or by image.

Floral Design Techniques are the “nuts & bolts” of floral design.  A good understanding of the basics in the construction of a floral design is essential to the completion of a superior design.  Accomplished floral designers are continuously studying, practicing and refining floral design techniques.

Floral Design is both a decorative craft and a creative art form.  In this section we explore advanced floral design as art.  While there is no single definition of “art”, to be considered floral art, floral design must be highly creative, original and emotionally link the designer and the viewer.

As with any creative art form, floral design is subject to the influence of many factors including: fashion clothing trends, architecture and interiors, mass media, social media and celebrity culture.  At Floral Design Institute, ongoing trends are intimately observed and analyzed so that we can assist professional floral designers stay up to date with the latest floral trends.
