Since the late seventies, this small, family-run shop has been jammed from front to back with a blaze of blooms far surpassing the quality offered by your corner bodega. Lenox Hill doesn’t deal in tropical flowers; its stock is carefully chosen from greenhouses in Long Island and from farms in Holland and New Zealand. When not busy stripping thorns and cutting stems, the staff may take the time to point out the difference between a daylily and a calla, and may not mind you watching them select hydrangeas, cymbidiums, and hyacinths for a gigantic arrangement headed to a Boathouse wedding. Cut flowers and bouquets of all sizes are lined up on the floor, ready for citywide delivery.
