About The Company

Sending flowers is like sending a little bit of happiness. Whether it’s a birthday or a bar mitzvah, a wedding or well-wishes, for sympathy or just for smiles… the gang at Merrimon Florist knows that sending flowers is a personal gesture. We listen to our customers and then create one-of-a-kind works of art.

Our founder, Steve, had been in the floral industry for over 40 years. (“Am I really that old?”) After being voted “Best Florist in Orlando” several years running, as well as a Teleflora Top 250 Florist in the United States, he moved to Asheville to begin a quiet and relaxing life. It drove him nuts.

Steve just couldn’t give up the floral life, and so in 2007 he started Merrimon Florist as a place to find and create beautiful things. He began this shop with his high standards in mind: Fresh, quality flowers; Timely delivery; and a workplace full of laughter. Because happy employees make happy customers.

Today, his right-hand-woman Denise carries on those high standards with a flair of her own. Born and raised right nearby in Haywood County, Denise is proud to keep Merrimon Florist locally owned. With a love of flowers and people, she’s grown Merrimon Florist from a little shop into a not-so-little family.

Just a mile north of downtown, we offer same-day delivery to all of Asheville, including all local hospitals and funeral homes.

Make Merrimon Florist your personal florist and find out why we’re “A Cut Above the Rest!”

Delivery Policy

A local delivery fee of 9.95 will be added to each order, for each address. (For deliveries outside our local delivery area, this fee may vary.)

U.S. orders must be received before 11:00 a.m. in the recipient's time zone to assure same-day delivery. Orders received after that time will be delivered the following day.

We will do our best to accommodate deliveries at specific windows of time, but we cannot guarantee it.

We are unable to make deliveries on Sundays. Deliveries requested on this day will be delivered the following business day.

Delivery of orders to rural route addresses or cemeteries cannot be guaranteed.

We will be happy to accept your international orders if you call our shop directly. We are unable to accept international orders over the Internet.



Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
