Founded by owner Gary Weiss in 1983, IXIA has remained one of the top floral boutiques in San Francisco. Renowned for their innovative window displays, created from flowers, plants and other natural resources, the name IXIA has become practically synonymous with eye-catching visuals within the Castro community. But as far as florists go IXIA is distinctly diverse - from parrot tulips to New Zealand callas and pincushion proteas to standard red roses, Weiss provides a wide array of flowers and floral arrangement services aimed at adding a touch of elegance and exoticism. Maintaining an environmental sensibility, IXIA favors common plants like bamboo, eucalyptus and lichen branches to serve as bases for their arrangements. Constructing floral sculptures for clients and events both big and small, IXIA is the place to go when looking for a one-of-a-kind arrangement that is sure to impress.Show lessRead more
