About the Company
     Jim Schmidt and Dave Goodman founded Hyacinth House in 1975, developing the company’s motto of “Home of Quality Green Plants and Flowers.” Hyacinth House purchased VanPeenen’s Flower Shop in 1977, a retail store and greenhouses that opened in 1930. Today, the family-owned-and-operated company has 25 full-time employees and two divisions: wholesale, a green and blooming plant distributor; and retail, a full-service florist. Hyacinth House boasts 30,000-square-feet of greenhouse space that is packed year-round with quality blooming, green and seasonal plants.
     As a full-service florist, Hyacinth House offers consumers a wide variety of cut flowers, floral arrangements, green and blooming plants, plant rentals and more. We cater to everyday events as well as weddings, funerals, graduations and corporate functions. We offer 24-hour Internet ordering at www.hyacinthhouseflowers.com and worldwide delivery with the wire services of Teleflora, FTD and BloomNet.
     In addition to a wide variety of fresh cut flowers and green and blooming plants, we sell stuffed plush animals, ceramics and pottery, crystal and glassware, baby novelties, latex and Mylar balloons, and fruit & gourmet baskets.
     Our floral designers have many years of combined experience in the field of design. In addition to skills required in the floral industry, they have experience with interior design and special events industries. The variety and quality of staff experience and skills strengthen our ability to provide the customer with a variety of approaches; be it contemporary, traditional or high style, our staff allows the client the versatility to choose the fashion that fits their own individual tastes. We also have Michigan Certified Florists (MCF) on staff. Customer satisfaction is 100 percent guaranteed.
