Owner Jamie Hemenway-Peotter purchased the shop in March 2016 and has put her own touch on things. Jamie, who holds a degree in Interior Design and has more than 14 years of local experience designing flower arrangements, stresses that the emphasis of Roots on Ninth is creativity and originality. Jamie has been recognized on many occasions for her designs.
Inspired by the love of both nature and texture, and with a focus on organic vegetables and hard-to-find plants, Jamie and her team found the location appealing. The opportunity to be in a neighborhood speaks to the comfortable atmosphere onsite – while offering specialized design with cut flowers for weddings and special events highlights the focus on creativity and modern design. And while you don’t usually think of a gift card as something to purchase at a flower shop, Roots on Ninth’s attention to creating unique floral design changes that – a gift card is an opportunity for your recipient to create a one-of-a-kind arrangement, tailored to his or her specific tastes.
Visitors to the shop are often greeted by Bella, the owner’s coonhound mix. Stop in quickly to pick up a pre-made arrangement or take your time, have a cup of coffee, and let us design something special for you!

With our Year Round Design Program, designers from Roots on Ninth take all the hassle out of having beautiful containers that change with the seasons! We’ll use your containers and plant them for you four times a year. Take advantage of our free pickup and delivery service, or, if your containers are too large to move, we’ll come to your site and plant there.
Typical offerings for each of the four seasons include:
Spring: a mix of bulbs such as tulips, daffodils, hyacinth, mixed with cold hardy pansies violas, lettuces, stock, and linaria.
Summer: beautiful and exotic tropicals mixed with profuse blooming annuals.
Fall: mums, ornamental kale and cabbage, along with ornamental peppers, and beautiful shades of orange and yellow rudbeckia.
Winter / Holiday: mix of evergreens, winterberries, birch and holly with bows and festive ornaments.
Included in this program is 1 free fertilizer boost in late July (when the plants typically need a strong dose to get them through the hot days).
Come in, consult with a designer, and let us help you achieve the look and feel you want for your event. We can help you plan and organize your event or wedding.
