Business Name Greenworks

Washington, DC

Description Perhaps the best general florist in Washington. For excellent service, call sales manager Natasha Shamsuddin directly. Tessmer of Fairfax has used Greenworks as our florists for years. We, as well as everyone we know, have been delighted with their flowers and plants. We highly recommend them. If you have seen The American President you may remember the scene where the president goes into a florist shop in Washington to order some flowers. That florist is real, it's Greenworks.
