The faces of Echelon Florist: Gary

Meet Gary Lee Anderson
Award Winning Designer

Gary’s Story: I have been in the floral industry for 28 years, starting at a Knoxville icon, Baum’s Florist, and ending here at another. I feel very strongly about education in our industry, and have been to most educational programs that have been offered in this area & surrounding. I also enjoy the competitive side of our business, and have brought several trophies home to Echelon. Including; East Tennessee Professional Florist Association Designer of the year (1992, 1995, 2003, 2012), First Runner Up Tennessee State Florist Association Designer of the year (2000, 2012), Iris Cup (2000). I would love for you to stop by the shop and visit with me. I love talking to people about the power of the flower!

Gary’s favorite type of design: My favorite type of design is sympathy arrangements. I love being able to help people express their feelings in a difficult time in their life.

Gary’s favorite flower: I love all flowers,  but when each flower hits their peak season they usually stand above the rest.
