Our History

Your Number-One Wilmington Florist Since 1900

Here at Boyd's Flowers, the secret to our longevity is simple - loyalty.

We may have grown over the last century (and beyond), but our values have remained consistent. When George Carson Boyd started the shop as a vegetable, fruit, and flower stand in Wilmington back in the day, the focus quickly turned to the flowers. Boyd began growing brilliant blooms and, a few years later, opened a storefront downtown. After WWII, Boyd sold his shop to Pat Roop, one of his floral designers, and her husband, Harvey. They ran the business until the late 1970s, passing it on to their daughter Linda and her husband, Reid Kellogg. Eventually, the Cinaglia family assumed ownership of the floral shop and continued its success until 2022, when they handed the reins to the Rutland Beard family. Today, the shop is operated by Loan Star Bloom.

Boyd's has always been a family-run business and is currently in its fifth generation. Our family is front and center in the store, working alongside dedicated employees and with long-term vendors who themselves feel like family. During George Carson Boyd's tenure, the shop was consistently the News Journal's Reader's Choice florist and has since been named Best of Delaware and ranked among the top 2% of florists nationwide.

Since 1900, we have prided ourselves on our sense of loyalty to our customers, our commitment to exceptional quality, and our devotion to our community. To this day, we are proud to continue these long and everlasting traditions.
