Thistle is a women-owned shop on 22nd Street in Tucson, Arizona, offering a seasonal and unique selection of fresh flowers for delivery, pick-up, weddings, and events. We also offer cacti, succulents, and tropical foliage, hand-selected and ready to adopt or gift. Our shop's non-living items are carefully selected home and personal goods for gifting and self-gifting. Our items are sourced directly from makers, with an emphasis on regional and local creatives. We're happy to additionally provide temporary or permanent installations of plants or florals, as well as private workshops (ask us!).

Thistle began as a collaboration between floral designer Victoria Martino and administrative whiz Carly Wilson. The pair began working together in 2016 and haven't stopped since - their differing specialties has made them the perfect team.

We're a small business with the scale to handle larger projects, but with personalized attention to the smallest details. Victoria has over 30 years of experience in the floral industry, designing flower arrangements to make life beautiful. She specializes in creating memorable weddings and special events with thoughtful, textural floral compositions.

Our store is located just south of downtown Tucson in the historic La Buena building. Please visit or call to learn more about what we do!


Thistle is proud to be a Visit Tucson partner.
