John and Mallory are gifts from the flora and fauna heavens. All our arrangements are gorgeous that we get here and it's a high end florist without the high end gouging, there are so many plants and really neat things to look at and shop for, it's always an adventure to look through all of their fabulous arrangements and huge patio. Thank you John, Jack and Mallory!!! More...

My beautiful mother loves flowers. She frequently entertains and is involved in several philanthropic groups in the Desert. She absolutely knows her flowers.  She is currently healing from some scary heart procedures and keeps getting flowers. She just told me "none can compare to Lotus Garden Center!  The best come from them!"  She directs everyone to go there now - not only for the high quality, but the unique designs! More...

John and his team are INCREDIBLE. My fabulous wedding planner had to convince me that I needed flowers  for my wedding at all, and boy, am I glad she did! The work was nothing short of spectacular. From the first time I met John, my now-husband and I were struck by his thoughtfulness and knowledge, and how carefully he listened to understand our vision and style. The arrangements he brought to the trial were fantastic, and the final product reflected the tweaks we requested. The chuppa was show-stopping, and the bouquet was so gorgeous that I took it with me to my honeymoon in Joshua Tree to spark a little extra joy at our Airbnb. Truly, can't say enough good things about this team. More...

Lotus Garden Center is truly a unique and creative florist making it one of the best in the Valley.  Just voted Best Florist in Valley by the Desert Sun,John along with Mallory and team provide creative, beautiful arrangements for any occasion.   A recent birthday staycation at the ACE Hotel Palm Springs was super enhanced by a beautiful, succulent arrangement with a bottle of Tequila as the centerpiece from Lotus Garden Center.  What a great way to celebrate!  The entire staff of the ACE Hotel commented on the uniqueness of the arrangement.

I am SO incredibly pleased with the service and quality of the flowers I ordered!  Mallory assisted me on the phone while ordering a sympathy bouquet for my Mother.  I did not have a lot of money and asked for a high quality petite bouquet.  Mallory was so kind, warm, patient and sympathetic.  To give her an idea of what I was looking for, I directed her to Lotus Garden Center's Yelp photos page and pointed out a bouquet I liked.  She was able to make the prettiest arrangement within my budget.Based on my experience, I HIGHLY recommend using Lotus Garden Center for any floral design & delivery you may have in the Coachella Valley.

John knocked our wedding out of the park. I was struck by how original his work looked, and yet how well he met our own vision, parameters, and budget.  I felt John and the Lotus team achieved a perfect balance between letting their creative juices flow, while also remaining open to our feedback. Special touches such as boutonnières that varied across the male wedding party to gold ribbon lining the vases to match our color scheme took our florals above and beyond.  One thing that we also appreciated was how closely the day of arrangements matched (or even exceeded) the demo flowers which John was kind enough to show us over FaceTime since we couldn't visit in person.  I would ABSOLUTELY use John and the Lotus team if we had to do it all over again. Thank you team! More...

Bought a bouquet here for my wife's birthday for the second year in a row.  My wife is an accomplished gardener, so it's hard to impress her with bought flowers.  But the flower seller at Lotus Garden has done it again, just blown her away with the quality of the flowers, the imaginative selection, the beautiful arrangement.  He's a flower genius, and I'll be back whenever we're in Palm Desert.  Seven days after purchase, and the flowers are still budding out!  Look fresh as the day I bought them.

One of my favorite things to do in the desert on a Saturday or Sunday morning is come walk through the small intimate garden and art gallery.

I recently ordered flowers for my sisters birthday through Yelp. This was very easy to do. The flowers were beautiful and even though I ordered the flowers the night before her birthday they were promptly delivered on her special day.

Have had nothing but amazing arrangements, and wonderful customer service from Lotus Garden Center! Mallory Ross is a joy to work with, not only is she spot on with my arrangements every time with little to no direction, her customer service is amazing. Constantly ordering flowers for my office and she makes it easy and painless. Would strongly recommend. More...

We contracted Lotus Garden Center for some plants for our patio.  Let me tell you that we are so impressed with how beautiful they turned out.  We purchased 2 concrete planters elsewhere....they will match our fountain....plus we purchased this remarkable fluted planter from Lotus Garden.  Mario waterproofed the containers for us and built the pedestal for the fluted container.   They are planted with what we requested.  I couldn't be happier!  Thank you Lotus Garden Center.  You have made our plain patio full of life!!!

Mallory from Lotus Garden did the bouquets and boutonnieres for my wedding and I am SO obsessed with how they came out!! She used her creativity along with my one request for dahlias and executed the arrangements just perfectly. The flowers were stunning and Mallory's work stands out! She also worked with my Mom to add a charm to my bouquet. I highly recommend the Lotus Garden and will always come back for any floral arrangements and will be spreading the word! Thank you, Lotus Garden, for making my Husband's and my special day that much more unforgettable. More...

They are amazing! I needed a floral arrangement designed and delivered for my mother's birthday. I am out of town and have used several floral services and local companies with disappointing results. I was referred to Lotus Garden by a friend and I am so happy with their kindness and thoughtfulness - not only to me but also to the creativity in the arrangement they delivered. My mother loved it and it was gorgeous. So happy to know of this gem of a place for the future orders and when I come to visit! More...

Words can't not express how enamored we are with the 2 floral arrangements they did for our trade show. We purchase for every conference and this by far is a complete show stopper and what beautiful dramatic pieces they did for the price. I'm just in awe of how pretty they are. This for sure will have everyone stopping by our booth. More...

I haven't written a Yelp review ever (I think) and the craftsmanship of Lotus Garden Center prompted me to do so. The team provided the arrangements for my wedding at The Living Desert on May 13. I know very little about flowers so I couldn't and didn't provide much guidance other than that I wanted some succulents and other plants native to the desert along with a few general comments on colors. John was so patient and provided amazing advice, including adding some candles, and what he and his team produced was extraordinary. The recommendations were spot on and the customer service unparalleled. The guests oohed and aahed over the centerpieces, and the arch, placed expertly in front of a small waterfall under which we said our vows, was gorgeous.  I couldn't be happier. I'd give 6 stars if I could! More...

I can't say enough good things about Lotus Garden or the flower arrangements they created for my wedding/reception. John was so incredibly nice and helpful, and such an artist. The flowers were simply spectacular, from the huge altar vases, to the bouquets, to the table decorations. And some additional details, like candles and flowers on the wedding cake, just made everything perfect. Wonderful experience from beginning to end, in every way. Thank you, John and the rest of the team! More...

As a Judge who has performed hundreds of weddings, I am certainly aware of the variations in quality in floral services.  For my daughter's wedding (yes, I was the officiant) we chose Lotus Garden Center in Palm Desert.What an amazing experience!  John Southorn was extraordinarily patient, helpful, and ultimately provided the most gorgeous arrangements I have ever experienced.  From the smallest boutonnière to the grand altar display, every floral arrangement was magnificent.  His staff created a magical ambience.  My only "issue" was that he might have outdone my Ceremony!  Call John; from your first contact you will understand my exuberance.

Stunning, gorgeous, perfect, so many words to describe the wonderful craftsmanship that went into our wedding flowers. I absolutely adored them. And they didn't cost an arm and a leg. I was very specific about what I wanted, and they did not disappoint. They carefully delivered the flowers to our wedding venue, and my bouquet and hair piece to my hotel. John and Mary were so lovely and I can't thank them enough! We planned our entire wedding online fromAustralia, so everything was a gamble, and we were VERY lucky to find Lotus Flower Garden.

I placed an order for my friend's wedding from SF.  They kept me posted through out the delivery and my friend is so happy with the beautiful flowers put together by Lotus Garden. Best customer services.

John from Lotus Garden was remarkable to work with. He captured the vision and created the most beautiful centerpieces and decor for my recent wedding. From a pathway lined with lanterns, pumpkins and greens, to the gift table, to the rose petal aisle, to the cocktail reception and the dinner decor -- everything was magnificent. Our guests couldn't stop raving about the flowers.John, thank you for making our wedding so special and for all the unique touches you added. I am truly grateful. More...

Excellent customer service! I placed an order ahead of time for flowers to be delivered to friends celebrating their 10-year anniversary, only to realize a few days later they would probably take a trip to celebrate. I asked if I could put the order on hold until I figured out when they would be back. The staff was very accommodating. When I finally reached my friends, they had just come back from a trip and were getting ready to leave again.Therefore, a flower delivery several weeks after the occasion would be out of place.I called Lotus to explain the situation and they very kindly offered to refund me in full. Everyone I talked to was very nice and I will definitely use them when I have future needs. More...

I'm usually not a yelper. However, my future wife was in Palm Desert for her bachelorette party and I wanted to send flowers to her hotel. So... I yelped. Found Lotus and went for it. The lady helping me was phenomenal. I asked for the flowers to get sent out the same day. No problem. No premium on the delivery cost. The flowers were delivered in 3 hours. Are you kidding me? That is absolutely wonderful! The next phone call I received was from the owner himself. Thanking me for my purchase and insuring satisfaction. Palm Desert. This place is a must use. Great business.
