Strelitzia is a 40-year-old family-owned florist shop which also operates a branch in Woodland at 400 Court Street. The business offers a good assortment of ready-made arrangements and loose flowers, in addition to pottery, plants, balloons, basket gardens, greeting cards, stuffed animals, vases, gift items, and silk flowers. Strelitzia has been voted "Best Florist in Yolo County" and recently received an honorable mention as the best independent retailer in Yolo County. They offer the freshest flowers available and also carry the largest inventory of flowers around. A unique feature of the Davis store is its large work area located behind the cash registers where staff create flower arrangements in full view of customers.
Owners Dean and Janice Labadie run the business, Dean having started the venture in 1971 while working his way through grad school at UC Davis. He obtained a city vendor's permit in 1972 in order to sell cut flowers from a cart in the lot adjacent to what is now The Paint Chip in Downtown Davis. He operated in this fashion for over 20 years before investing in their original Davis storefront on the southeast corner of Third and G Street. The business remained in that location for another 20 years, their departure to 2nd Street taking place on July 1, 2008.
In the News
The business appears in a ranked KCRA 3 listing in the category entitled Best Wedding Flowers.

2011-08-25 21:01:28 We just had our wedding flowers done here. I was very happy with them. I didn't have pictures to share with the staff member I met with, so just described what I wanted. They were beautiful! And they charged me just $30 to delivery in south Sacramento from Davis. They were there exactly on time and were very nice. —CeliaSepulveda

2012-01-14 18:42:47 This place really SUCKS if you are looking to buy whole sale flowers. I gave them 4 weeks notice to get a bunch of flowers for my wedding reception. They raised the price on me after I placed my order. Then they didn't even get me the correct color of daisies, the stems of everything were scrawny and weak, and all the alstermeria were wilted when I got my order. I don't know if they use better quality in their own arrangements but I personally will Never buy from them again. —Kaleigh
2012-06-05 19:53:12 The flowers are beautiful here, BUT the people were quite rude and condescending to me when it became apparent that I was not looking to spend hundreds of dollars. A sale is still a sale, even if it is small! —RKor
2012-08-17 08:06:38 WOW. I wanted to send my girlfriend some little flower arrangement at work just to brighten her day a little, but there is literally nothing in their entire inventory that fits a reasonable person's budget. The cheapest flower arrangement they even offer, at least in the "make someone smile" category, was $37, plus $11 "wire fee" to purchase online, and an $11 delivery fee— yup, $60 for the cheapest possible option. Sure, if I were planning to propose, I'd drop that and more. If this were an anniversary, no problem (although I'd definitely shop around first). But if you're just looking to do something nice, and you are living on a student budget or low income, forget about it.
I thought I'd share in case this comment saved someone a few minutes of searching and disappointment. —AndrewWaymire
2012-08-30 09:31:09 In regards to a few of these comments: -When we purchase flowers from our growers prices are always subject to change. Just like at a grocery store apples will be on special one week and not the next. We can never guarantee that the prices or availability will be exact every week. We do our best to locate flowers at the best quality and price. Sometimes we will have to purchase flowers from growers with higher prices to make sure we provide the correct colors and quantities. We always let our customers know of changes as soon as we know. -We have customers with all types of budgets and we do our best to accommodate everyone. We offer wholesale flowers to the public and we have a minimum of $36 for delivery ($25 arrangement + $11 delivery). When placing an order if you do not see something you like or within your budget you can all us direct and one of our sales staff can help create a custom arrangement. If anyone has proplems in the future please call our Davis location (530)758-5050 and ask to speak with management. We appreciate all feedback and are always looking for ways to improve and keep our customers happy. —StrelitziaFlowerCompany
