Best Florists

Jayson Home

1885 N. Clybourn Ave., 773-248-8180,
Container plants: Jayson’s alluring aesthetic ranges from the exotic (grassy-leaved sweet flag and bugleweed) to the practical (succulents and edibles such as peppers and herbs).

A New Leaf
Orchids: Carrying 20 to 30 orchids at each of its three shops, A New Leaf has the city’s most unusual and beautiful selection—recently, lady’s slippers, tall and delicate Oncidiums, and lovely species of Phalaenopsis.


1944 W. Montrose Ave., 773-769-8825,
Terrariums: Owner Marco Chavarry dreams up soothing worlds with winding paths and Hindu gods and goddesses amid succulents and shapely air plants. The entry-level orb is $30.
