Want to make a real impression this Veterans Day? Give a floral gift.
Since 1919, we've been honoring our U.S. military veterans on November 11, saluting their courage, dedication and sacrifice in serving their country. In our St. Louis community alone there are over 18,000 veterans, according to the U.S Census Bureau. And that means we've got a lot of honoring to do.
Here at Walter Knoll Florist, we believe that it's the small, meaningful gestures we make, like sending flowers, that can really communicate our gratitude, affection and respect. Read More about Honorable Florals for Veterans Day »

This autumn, we invite you to fall in love with dahlias, like we here at Walter Knoll Florist have. And frankly, so has the rest of the world. This unusual, star-shaped bloom is related to mums and zinnias, but has an uncommon beauty all its own. Its patterning is so intricate, and its range of available colors so rich, that it's pretty much the "It" bloom for Fall and holiday floral decor. Let us show you what this showy flower can do.

Somewhere in California in the 1960's, a man gave his wife a transistor radio. When she asked him why, he responded "just because". His kids loved the gesture so much, it began a tradition in their home to surprise other members of the family for the same reason - no reason! Pretty soon the neighborhood took notice, and the trend became a community event. 50 years later, we are here writing about "Just Because Day", which became a national observance in 2005. The Goodwin family would likely be surprised to know how much everyone loved their holiday!
the holiday has grown beyond giving gifts, and instead represents a day to do something unexpected, to color outside the lines, or to think outside the box. You are encouraged to walk away from the mundane routine for a day, and try something completely different! On August 27, don't forget the flowers from Walter Knoll Florist - after all, flowers make every day special! Read More about Celebrating Just Because Day with Flowers »

The rose is an incredible flower. It has been employed over the centuries both as a symbol of romantic love and passion, as well as a symbol of war. Its flowers are beautiful and elegant - yet the rosebush is one of the most resilient plants in the world. Roses are given to express the most intimate of sentiments, yet rosebushes are often landscaped into yards and campuses for security and protection. The rose is known as the Queen of flowers for many reasons - and this June, during National Rose Month, the floral designers at Walter Knoll Florists would like to share some amazing facts about this spectacular flower.
