Our Story

Pine State Flowers wants to revive the idea and practice of an old-fashioned flower shop. It aims to be a beautiful neighborhood space to pop in and grab flowers or a special gift before dinner.

Pine State Flowers is located in the historic Roll's Florist building, built in the 1930s. Fred Roll emigrated from Germany, became a florist for the Duke family, and later established his own business in 1899, when Lakewood Shopping Center was still a casino and amusement park. The original Roll's Florist included 7 acres of botanical gardens, a flower nursery, and 5 glass greenhouses. At its peak, it was the largest floral supplier in the Southeast.

We are proud to return this historic building to its roots—bringing joy to people through flowers, and supporting local flower farmers.
