Established in 2001, Lillypad Flowers was born out of a little 'Cottage Garden on Spring' in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. Over time they have seen the business grow from a couple of retail locations in Reservoir to expand into a warehouse now based in Preston. Their love for providing quality, unique and creative floral gifts curated with love has seen clients ordering and travelling from all over Melbourne for our flowers.
