The owner of Artistic Florist of Tampa, Wendy Turmel, inhabits a beautiful landmark that was once a gas station and is now a florist shop on Busch Boulevard and Armenia Avenue. The spot has been a local flower shop since 1976! Wendy took over the property in 2009 and has seen a HUGE increase in foot-traffic these days; seems her shop is a Pokéstop! While acquiring your fresh sunflowers, roses, and baby's breath, you can play Pokémon Go at Artistic Florist of Tampa! Wendy welcomes the activity and enjoys watching people search her lot. As an artist, she appreciates the creativity and hopes they stop in to take a gander at her quirky little gift shop.

If you are looking for a uniquely themed bouquet or basket, Wendy would love to meet you and make your floral dreams come true with her premium creativity.  She offers the highest quality flowers and produces impeccable style at a reasonable price! She also has a novelty gift shop the Poké-goers seem to love.
