More About RosAmungThorns

RosAmungThorns, LLC was established in May of 2013 as Springfield’s premier floral shop.  In addition to traditional floral services one would expect, RosAmungThorns sets themselves apart by offering educational courses to the flower enthusiast.  RosAmungThorns specializes in high-quality arrangements that far exceed the industry standards using cutting-edge designs to improve the lives of their clients.


RosAmungThorns started as a home based business in May of 2013 and quickly expanded into retail space 30 days later.  Springfield Business Journal featured the owner/operator Theresa Carter-Hess in 2013 on the front page of their publication.  Later that year, RosAmungThorns became a member of the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce and had a grand opening ribbon-cutting.  RosAmungThorns moved into the current space at 2030 South Stewart in May of 2014. The floral design class began in October of 2014 and has been running strong. RosAmungThorns became a member of the Better Business Bureau in 2015.

You must be wondering by now about the unusual spelling of the company name. It’s not a typo. In fact, Theresa’s grandpa used to call her “the rose among thorns.” When she opened her first email account, she wanted to honor that, but the correct spelling was taken. “RosAmungThorns” was the obvious next choice.

We used RosAmungThorns for our wedding flowers. Theresa made the process very simple, and very educational.

We told her what we wanted, and she created it. THEN, she told us ways to make it better.

We told her our budget, and she stuck to it. She kept the price to what other Flower Places quoted, and then in my opinion did a better job.

I HIGHLY recommend Theresa at RosAmungThorns.

Rosamungthorns is awesome! Theresa did the flowers for my wedding in June. She did such a lovely job at a very reasonable price.

I actually left a lot of ideas up to her as I’m not one to have to make specific choices. I just gave her the general theme and she did amazing things within my budget!

I would definitely recommend her work and hire her again!!! She’s friendly and personable and a joy to work with!

I definitely recommend RosAmungThorns for any floral arrangements.
