Is it a false spring in Indiana? Maybe. But don’t let that stop you from enjoying the beauty of blooms, whether they’re popping up in your yard or an add-on to your cart at the grocery. However, if you’re looking to hire a professional for a sweet single arrangement, go all out for your wedding day, or simply want to explore the art of floral design, here are seven local florists you need to follow.

Paula specializes in floral design as a form of expression and a function of delight, offering flowers for delivery city-wide, weddings, events, workshops, and special projects. With 16 years of experience, Shoultz says her approach to design is inquisitive, scientific, humanistic, artistic, sensitive, conceptual, and environmentally conscious. She is dedicated to making floristry more sustainable and accessible. Follow her on Instagram @The_archivist for information about upcoming art exhibits, collage, drawing, and flower workshops.
