Imagine Savvy’s surprise to find an established Baltimore florist in a brand new spot, tucked away on a tiny street in her very own neighborhood. Local Color Flowers (LoCoFlo) has moved into its fourth location in five years, and this time, says owner Ellen Frost, it’s for keeps. The Charles Village building, all on one floor, is big enough for deft designer hands and hulking delivery trucks, and it’s all powered by wind. LoCoFlo uses only flowers grown by farmers within a 100-mile radius, so not only is it helping the local economy, it’s providing seasonal punch to its flower arrangements. For March, flowering branches of cherry, pussywillow, dogwood, quince and witch hazel make beautiful bouquets, as do more traditional tulips, ranunculus, snapdragons, daffodils and calla lilies. Don’t forget elegant little bundles of fresh herbs such as rosemary and lavender. Also offered are floral design classes and “Wine and Design” nights. But don’t just pop in; service is by appointment only. 3100 Brentwood Ave., 410-262-1494, http://www.locoflo.com
