GERMANTOWN - Kostas Koutantzis, owner of the Flower Source in Germantown, is honored with a special plaque for the business’ ‘Continued support of the Mission and Membership of the Greater Milwaukee Rose Society.’

Making the presentation is Diane Sommers, a Master Rosarian, past-president of the GMRS and vice president of the American Rose Society. Sommers noted the Flower Source's continued outreach to rose growers in the area by offering the most popular as well as the most current rose varieties. “Kostas and the entire staff at the Flower Source are always friendly and extremely helpful to all customers, but seem to have a special affection for those of us who are committed to growing roses,” the Richfield resident said. She noted that rose plants at the Flower Source are unique in that they arrive as bare-root stock and are planted and nurtured on-site in the hoop houses at the property.

The presentation was made recently at the organization’s monthly meeting.
