Forget Flowers.com, we’ve put together this guide to the best local florists in Pittsburgh to help you shop local for beautiful blooms all year round.

Pittsburgh, a notoriously gray city, erupts in color each spring as the sun coaxes perennials and wildflowers to bloom. I love taking meandering walks, strolling slowly past impressive gardens. Because I don’t have much of a green thumb, I bring spring to my home with rotating bouquets of cut-flowers. Check out our guide to finding the best cut-flowers and bouquets in Pittsburgh. 

Gold Dust Floral  // Lawrenceville

At Gold Dust Floral in Lawrenceville, you may purchase a wrapped bouquet or build your own arrangement from the stem bar. The brick and mortar location has a variety of indoor plants, letterpress cards, candles, accessories and other gifts. The store offers bouquet subscriptions for delivery, within a 10 mile radius, or for pickup whenever you need a pick-me-up.
