The top 5 florists in the PATH

The top florists in the Financial District can all be found in the PATH, the underground maze - er, I mean, network - of pedestrian walkways connecting more than 50 buildings and office towers in the downtown core. With over 200,000 office commuters passing through each day, some are bound to need flowers for their assistants, significant others or heck, even themselves at some point.

Here are the five best places to purchase floral arrangements or plants in the PATH - and please do try your best not to get lost down there.

Ringe & Associates
Located under Scotia Plaza, Ringe takes floral design seriously. They do it all: floral and plant/garden services for both individual and corporate clients. You may even have seen their work on TV; they've done on-set arrangements for shows like Suits and FlashPoint as well as the HBO film Grey Gardens.

Pistil Flowers
With two locations - one at Brookfield Place and the other at First Canadian Place - Pistil takes a contemporary approach to its floral arrangements. In addition to unique bouquets (there's a luxe "Doghouse"/"I'm sorry" bouquet for when you really screw up), these bright, inviting shops sell terrariums and potted orchids to liven up office spaces or homes.

Tidy's Flowers
In business since 1877, Tidy's is the city's oldest florist, and a classic go-to for Bay Streeters. Fresh flowers, bouquets, gift baskets and even La Rocca cakes for every occasion can be ordered and delivered to anywhere in the world. Its elegant-looking shops can be found in Commerce Court North and the Richmond-Adelaide Centre.

Flower Creations
Gerberas are this florist's top sellers, but staff are more than willing to help you decide on what's appropriate for your particular purposes. Drop in and browse from their colourful selection of bouquets, baskets and cards at their shop at the Standard Life Centre or the kiosk under the TD North Tower.

Anemone Flowers
Tucked away in the concourse below 55 University Ave., this family-run shop aims to please with its friendly, personable service. Anemone can recommend something for every life event, from blooms that welcome the births of babies to sympathy/funeral floral arrangements and everything in between.
