Our History

Cutting Edge Since 1938

Conklyn's Florist first opened its doors in Arlington in 1938. They've been open ever since.

Not many businesses - let alone flower shops - can claim to have been serving their community for 75 years. It's an achievement we take great pride in. Founded by Daniel Conklyn and co-owned with Herschel Andrews, Conklyn's was such a success we added a second location on King Street in Old Town just 25 years later. In the 1960s, we set up another shop in the Pentagon. When we say that we've truly served our vibrant community from all corners, we mean it.

By 1972, David C. and Mona Hicks assumed ownership of the business, having spent the last 20 years dedicating themselves to its success. Today, their son David R. Hicks is the owner, making Conklyn's not only a historic operation, but a family-run one.

In 2002, we decided to consolidate, bringing everything together under one, conveniently-located roof. Now we house a retail and design facility as well as a wholesale division at our Alexandria location. Here, we've been able to maximize Conklyn's potential, providing the entire Washington Metro area with fresh cut flowers, plants, event decor and floral supplies via prompt, exceptional service. We've done our best to earn our spot as one of the top 50 florists in the U.S. for over 15 years.
