The founder of 48LongStems began his flower business on Valentine's Day of 2001 by selling more than 1,000 roses to passersby on a street curb in West Palm Beach, Florida. Motivated by the idea of surprising loved ones with a charmingly overwhelming boatload of flowers, he started a website where customers could send 100, 200, or even 400 roses to their special someone or favorite parade float builder. In addition to bouquets, the site delivers bonsai plants and gift boxes full of spa goods and sweet treats.
