In Montreal, the most popular flowers tend to be internationally popular as well. For instance, the top sellers of Montreal florists’ include roses, carnations, irises, lilies, azaleas, and mums. However, the Montreal flower market also showcases a wide variety of sizes and colors of sunflowers, as well as more exotic flowers such as orchids and varieties of birds of paradise.

Most Popular Holidays
The most celebrated holidays in Montreal are also the busiest time of year for the floral industry in this city. Beginning in February, Valentine's Day is the most romantic holiday of the year, and roses are the most popular arrangement sold on this day. Mother's Day, which is in May, as well as Father's Day, celebrated a month later in June, are also two of the most important holidays of the summer. Residents of Montreal order flower arrangements for parents to suit the personalities of the individuals on each of these holidays. Grandparents Day is another popular holiday, celebrated in Montreal in September, and  flower arrangements are in high demand on this occasion as well. The holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Passover are two of the most important holidays in the Montreal communities of Cote Saint-Luc and Hampstead, where the Jewish population is the majority. Kosher flower arrangements are sold by the majority of Montreal florists in these neighborhoods to meet the needs of the Jewish community. Christmas is also a major holiday in Montreal, resulting in a wide variety of flower arrangements being sold as decorative pieces for the home as well as gifts throughout the month of December.

Flower Budget and Logistics
In Montreal, expect the price of flowers to be anywhere on the low end of 25 Canadian dollars and upwards of 300 Canadian dollars or more. The least expensive arrangements are premade bouquets sold for less popular holidays or personal events such as birthdays, births, and Secretaries' Day. On the upper end of the price range are the larger arrangements that are custom-made, such as a casket spray for a funeral.

Out of the approximately 50 floral shops with information listed on the Web, most offer their services internationally. That is, while all of the floral shops offer local delivery services, usually within the next day of an order depending on the season and amount of customization, a large portion of Montreal flower shops offer their services via online orders that are available to the international market.

Montreal florists offer a standard amount of premade designs showcased in their online galleries. However, almost all of the shops also offer consultation services during which the florists will customize arrangements according to your individual request. One of the notable designs available from most Montreal florists is a European-inspired dish garden featuring flowers nestled inside a tall, clear glass vase in a unique arrangement unlike the typical bouquet style. Florists offer this style on each end of the price range, as well as with your choice of a variety of flowers including roses, sunflowers, and orchids. Another key aspect of flower arrangements made in Montreal is the use of greenery. A theme of naturalistic arrangements flows from shop to shop in Montreal. The majority of premade arrangements feature a style referred to as fresh, in which greenery such as hosta leaves and ferns constitute approximately half of the arrangement. These arrangements also feature a kaleidoscope of colors rather than one single hue for the entire arrangement.
