Legends Bloom

Mrs. DeHaven's Flower Shop, one of Tulsa's oldest and finest businesses, began in 1905. Flowers were not prevalent in 1905 and at that juncture in retailing history, flowers were not shipped around the world with the ease of mailing a letter.  Tulsans quickly became enamored with Mrs. DeHaven's fresh and beautiful flowers.  Tulsans were not only impressed with Josephine DeHaven's floral artistry, they knew she had an eye for exquisite gifts and a flair for elaborate parties.  It is that reputation that has made Mrs. Dehaven's more than just a flower shop.

Josephine DeHaven

 What is now the thriving metropolis of Tulsa was just a pioneer settlement in Indian Territory, 1905.  The shop was established by Josephine DeHaven, who came to Tulsa along with her husband from Fort Wayne, Indiana.  They built their first greenhouse to grow flowers in 1905, and those flowers were sold in the Shackles Drug Store.  Soon the fresh cut flower business grew, and Josephine opened a "Flower Room" at Miss Jackson's fine dress shop.  As with all progressive businesses, there was growth, and after five relocations, Mrs. DeHaven's took root at its present site at 15th & Boston.  While traveling to a floral convention in New Orleans, Josephine was the unfortunate victim of an automobile accident in Tupelo,  Mississippi.  It was then that ownership of the business changed hands.  Mrs. Trula Austin, who had worked for Mrs. DeHaven since the age of 16 was named proprietor.  Until her death in 1978, Mrs. Austin carried on the fine standards and policies of business that customers had come to enjoy.
