North Carolina's first exclusively local flower shop

Using local flowers strengthens the local economy, supports small organic family farms, and reduces waste.

Sending flowers is a token of love—make the sustainable choice.

 
 
 
 

Local & Sustainable

Did you know? Almost 80% of flowers used in the United States are imported from other countries. Typical flowers can travel thousands of miles before they get to your door, and are pumped full of preservatives in order to keep them alive. 

Pine State Flowers only sources sustainably produced flowers grown in America—no chemicals, no imports—and your money stays in the local economy. More than 95% of the flowers used at Pine State Flowers are grown right here in North Carolina. Since 2014, the shop has put over $60,000 into the hands of local farmers.

 

Special Events

The studio specializes in organic, seasonal arrangements. Local flowers tell a unique story about your special day. Whether your style is traditional, modern, or a little wild, Pine State Flowers can make sure your special day is gorgeous, environmentally friendly, and completely unique.

Historic Flower Shop

Pine State Flowers is an independently owned flower shop run by Maggie Smith, a self-taught designer who fell in love with the historic Roll's Florist building in Durham.

Built in the 1930's, the Roll's Florist building has remained largely intact, and was mostly vacant for 25 years before being reopened as Pine State Flowers.

Thank you for joining me in this venture to breathe life into this timeworn building, once the largest floral supplier in the Southeast at the turn of the 19th century, and over 115 years later is still peddling the joy of flowers.
