We Know Flowers -

Butterflies, Bees & Flower Gardens

The natural world is a synergistic system, in which the individual components rely on each other for survival. The insects need flowers for food, the flowers need the insects for pollination, and in turn, humans need the bees to sustain our food supply. Because we are all so interconnected, it only makes sense for us to help support the bees and butterflies by providing them with a safe haven. (Not to mention, watching them work is fascinating!) At Walter Knoll Florist, you'll find all the floral expertise you need to plan your very own Saint Louis butterfly garden for your patio or backyard. But Won't I Get Stung? Honeybees are experiencing a critical loss of population. By providing honeybees with a garden to gather nectar and pollen, you will be assisting them in their fight for survival. But honeybees at work are generally uninterested in stinging anyone, and as long as you leave them alone, there should be no danger.  Read More about Butterflies, Bees & Flower Gardens »

Easter Lilies, Floral Designs & Gifts

Easter Sunday is a holiday with something for everyone - a combination of two distinctly opposite traditions that have managed to merge to create one celebration. With Easter eggs and bunnies originating in pagan fertility festivals, and the Christian tradition contributing the story of the Resurrection, it is a strange combination indeed. Still, many people do observe elements of both traditions - and no matter how you celebrate, Walter Knoll Florist has the florals and gifts you are looking for. The Easter Lily: While flowers have a place in both traditions, it is the Christian faith that views the Easter lily as symbolic. Representing hope and new life, the white lily is often used in Easter Sunday church services and to give to people of faith.  Read More about Easter Lilies, Floral Designs & Gifts »

National Puppy Day Urges Adoption from Shelters

Here at Walter Knoll Florist, we love dogs. In fact, as a pet-friendly shop, it is not uncommon for us to have four or five dogs come to visit us every day. Because of our love for our puppies, we admire efforts such as National Puppy Day that aim to make life better for animals. Established 10 years ago by Colleen Paige - who is also the pet-lover behind National Dog Day and National Cat Day - this latest effort was meant to bring attention to the issue of puppy mills for-profit breeders and to encourage people to adopt puppies from shelters instead. There are over 70,000 puppies born annually in the United States, and approximately 1.4 million dogs are surrendered to shelters each year. National Puppy Day seeks to educate families on the great need to give homes to these lovable animals who are hoping for a forever home.  Read More about National Puppy Day Urges Adoption from Shelters »

Green Flowers and Decor for St. Patrick’s Day

It is a well-known fact that "everyone is Irish" on St. Patrick's Day. Whether you claim the luck of the Irish or espouse the wearing of the green,  it is easy to get caught up in all the celebration of the holiday. Here in St. Louis, we have the big St. Patrick's Day Parade (on March 11, 2017), a 5K run, dinner galas, and parties at Irish pubs all over town - there is certainly no lack of opportunity to revel in all things Irish! When choosing your favorite green outfit to wear, don't forget to dress up your home or office as well, with whimsical and beautiful St. Patrick's Day flowers from Walter Knoll Florist. Did You Know? The most famous Irishman of all time was not actually Irish - he was British. St. Patrick was a missionary to Ireland for most of his adult life and was adored by the people there. He is credited for converting the largely Celtic Druid population to Christianity.  Read More about Green Flowers and Decor for St. Patrick’s Day »
