About The Company

Cleveland The Florist began in the early 40's as a family based business focused on customer satisfaction. After more than 55 years, the third generation continues to make customer satisfaction a priority. This is accomplished by providing the freshest flowers arranged in unique floral displays by professional floral designers.

Cleveland The Florist has a long and distinguished past.

Ulysses (Lee) and Florence Cleveland started in the floral business by selling hybrid cuttings of azaleas and camellias to Van Antwerp's department store. Their first retail location opened in 1948 on Stone Street in Toulminville. This store consisted of a traditional retail floral shop, a seed store and a greenhouse. In 1956, Lease Cleveland, their son, joined the business.

Lease's daughter, Lenae Cleveland Denson, began working for the family's florist business as a teenager. While at college Lenae worked in several large floral shops in the Metropolitan Atlanta area. During this time Lenae also started importing Holland Flowers. Upon returning to Mobile, Lenae began writing a weekly column in the Mobile Register, "Living with Flowers". Lenae expanded into television and created a holiday special as well as her own show, " Lifestyles with Lenae". Presently Lenae makes frequent television appearances for several of the local area television stations.

Fun Fact: Cleveland the Florist provided the flowers at the local library for the First Lady of Alabama, Patsy Riley.

Delivery Policy

A local delivery fee starting at $11.95 will be added to each order, for each address. (For deliveries outside our local delivery area, there will be an additional service relay charge of $7.95.)

U.S. orders must be received before 1:00 p.m. in the recipient's time zone to assure same-day delivery. Orders received after that time will be delivered the following day.

We will do our best to accommodate deliveries at specific times of day, but we cannot guarantee it.

We will be happy to accept your international orders if you call our shop directly. We are unable to accept international orders over the Internet.

Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
