Delivering Fresh Flowers Since 1890

Fresh, seasonal flowers are cut daily for our handcrafted bouquet collections, artisanal vase designs, and custom floral expressions. For everyday expressions, special occasions, and events, our experienced customer service team and flower artists are ready to provide guidance and the most brilliant, high-quality blooms. Our horticulturists present a large assortment of trending and exotic houseplants in addition to decorative pottery and glass. To enhance your sentiment or find a unique treasure, browse our collection of fine gifts and greeting cards.
A Mid-Missouri Destination
The floral shop, purchased in 1890 by Mr. Hugo Busch, a German immigrant, is known as the oldest continuously operating business in the Capital City. Additionally, Busch's greenhouse is one of the oldest West of the Mississippi. Both the floral shop and greenhouse recently underwent revitalization and are nestled in the heart of Jefferson City's Historic Germantown 'Old Munichburg' District, located on the Corner of Madison and Dunklin Streets. More than 130 years later, Busch's Florist and Greenhouse still welcomes guests through its shopfront doors. The greenhouse continues to function not only as a traditional hothouse but as a 'home and garden' retail and potting studio, as well as an event space.
Our Latest Addition
As of April 2023, Busch's Florist has opened a secondary location within Acola Coffee Company in the North Village Arts District of downtown Columbia, Missouri. This location is a flower bar and boutique gift shop proudly offering handtied bouquets, potted houseplants, locally-made candles, and artist-commissioned merchandise. When you visit Acola x Busch's, you will be encouraged to "Drink Coffee and Smell the Flowers."
Over 130 Years of Reliable Service
Rich in experiences, a visit to Busch's Florist offers plenty of Instagramable and interactive moments with our brand history and signature products. When visiting, be sure to step inside the historic cooler to "Stop and Smell the Roses" and say "Hi" to our residential rescue parrot, Berni, who nests in the greenhouse. Then, make your way outside for a picture with the newly restored 1950s truck, staged inside the garden tent! Lastly, a visit to the shop wouldn't be complete without strolling over to another well-known nostalgic area destination - our 'sweet little neighbor' Central Dairy Ice Cream Parlor.
