Global Rose - https://globalrose.com/ - is a floral company that offers wholesale flowers, bouquets, and arrangements. They offer special pre-made products for special occasions, such as weddings and holidays and various life events.
Though their contact information list as being in Miami, in their ‘about’ description they say that they fly their flowers to Miami, and there are multiple grammar and formatting mistakes in both the website and in responses to reviews posted on third-party websites. Several sources say that they are actually based in Columbia, which in and of itself is not surprising,
as many roses and other kinds of flowers grow there for the climate.
Review of Global Rose
Reviews are very polarized. A quick glance shows good ratings of 4+ stars on five websites but
delving deeper shows a large number of unsatisfied customers. Most of the complaints are due to shipping issues, which aren’t necessarily the company’s fault, as the products are shipped via FedEx and not the company themselves - and shipping something so fragile, that’s dependent on specific care requirements like temperature, and that has a comparatively short shelf life, is always going to have at least some problems. On The Knot, at least, Global Rose does address both critical comments and praising comments, and
their explanations for those who have experienced issues do appear to be reasonable and fair. They also operate on Amazon, which adds a bit of authenticity, and
on this platform the majority of reviews are positive. Again, shipping is the main difficulty customers have had,
and this is always going to be a tough point for such a large floral company that doesn’t handle this aspect of business themselves. They do their best to prevent complications on their end by not harvesting blooms until absolutely needed for their delivery, attempting to package them as protectively as possible, and making sure that they get their flowers to FedEx facilities on refrigerated trucks; they also have policies to help address things as they arise.
Final Opinion for Global Rose
There are a few threads about whether or not the company is a scam, but I feel that I would be comfortable ordering from them. When ordering from any new company,I wouldn’t necessarily spend hundreds of dollars the first time, but I’d definitely be okay purchasing something and giving them a shot. Global Rose seems like a legitimate company, and they seem to have a passion for flowers.

Products at Global Rose. As the name implicitly implies, they do offer many different kinds of roses. This subpage is first organized by color and a few other characteristics such as spray or stem and size, which is helpful. In some cases they offer just a basic order of ‘pink spray roses’ or ‘burgundy roses’,
but in others, a customer is able to choose the exact variety of roses they’d like, such as High & Blooming and Hilux. Packages run from 50 to 250 stems, with prices dependent on the kind of roses you purchase and free shipping generally available. Each selection has a column of product information that includes such details as vase life, bloom time, stem length, etc.
Their other main ‘bulk’ category is carnations. It follows the same pattern as the roses, but there is a difference in the number of stems available to buy - 100 to 400 stems is the range here.
Global Rose isn’t nearly so simple as to have only those two options, though. They have an incredible variety of miscellaneous florals, from different kinds of greens to baby’s breath to orchids - even rose petals! And as far as greens go, there’s not just your run-of-the-mill leatherleaf and Ruscus; they have ming, grasses, palms, eucalyptus, dusty miller, and even aralia leaves, which is a pretty decent assortment of many different textures.
Arrangements of Global Rose Products
Pre-made arrangements and bouquets are also offered, and even as personal florals such as boutonnieres and corsages. They’re separated into different categories based on the ‘brand’
of bouquets and different kinds of occasions, including holidays beyond Valentine’s, such as Christmas and Easter. For weddings, there are pre-made centerpieces for sale as well as pre-made bridesmaid’s and bride’s bouquets. Here’s the link to all their wedding florals: https://globalrose.com/wholesale/wedding-flowers.html.
There really is a decent variety available here, with competitive pricing and good deals on shipping. You could likely find a product for any event you have in mind,
with less trouble and less cost than going through a middleman. I’d say it’s a viable option for anyone looking to order florals!
