La Tropicale Flower  Shop



The Name La Tropicale speaks for itself.

I wanted the name to depict the type of work that will be produced at the organization and that is the use of our locale flowers and foliage.

The holder of the National Award in the field of Small Business, La Tropicale Flower Shop was established in 1987. Our doors were opened at the Kapok Hotel.

After a few years the business started to outgrow the space and then, La Tropicale was relocated to the Shoppes of Maraval. A number of years passed and once again space became a factor. The property where the shop is presently located in St. James is owned by La Tropicale.

Also, the La Tropicale Floral Institute was established in 1993. Floral courses are held three times per year. Under the guidance of the owner, La Tropicale also teaches courses in floral decor and design.

From the many students we have had, eight went on to open their own flower shops. 

As one of the premier Flower Shops in Trinidad and Tobago, our reputation has allowed us the privilege and opportunity to travel abroad and showcase our work.

Such examples would include a trip to Sweden with the Minister of Trade on a Trade Mission to showcase our creative designs in the use of our locale flowers and foliage and with the President to decorate for a cocktail reception held in Venezuela.
La Tropicale has also done extensive work throughout the Caribbean, hosting workshops and seminars for a number of associations, and horticultural groups. In addition, we have been contracted on numerous occasions abroad to decorate and coordinate for various decor events.


Recognized as one of the leading creative artistic design companies, who specializes in the use of our locale flowers and foliage in the country as well as the Caribbean, we at La Tropicale are always in demand to set new trends.
