'No regrets': Longtime Sioux Falls florist leaves legacy of success - Argus Leader
Gustaf's Greenery in Sioux Falls from 1986 until 2018, died Monday at age 67.
Gustaf decided to close the Minnesota Avenue flower shop last year after battling renal cell carcinoma for two years.
"No regrets. Truly no regrets at all," he told the Argus Leader in December. "I think we've made our mark on the world."
Gustaf grew up on the north end of Sioux Falls and attended O'Gorman High School, according to his obituary. Early on, his love for flowers and plants was already flourishing: He began working at Earl May Garden Center in Sioux Falls while still in high school. After starting his own business at the Western Mall in the early 1970s, Gustaf and his sister Jean opened Gustaf's Greenery in 1986.
"He was probably the most social person I ever met," Jean Gustaf said of her brother.

The Gustaf siblings used their respective skills in running their store. Pat, ever the social butterfly, handled the marketing and public-facing duties, while Jean, who worked as a nurse at the Veterans Administration, kept things going behind the scenes.
"He'd say yes to everything. I'd say, 'No, we can't do that,'" Jean said, laughing.
Gustaf's daughter, Karlee Bathke, echoed her aunt's sentiments.
"He would make friends wherever we went because he wanted to know everyone’s story," she said. "He wouldn’t just make small talk; he truly connected with each and every person he met."
Pat always valued spending time in his community, Jean said. In addition to running his own business, he was involved in the Lions Club and helped found the South Dakota Flor... Oct 10, 2019
Local Slow-Flower Farms Around Minnesota That Are Blossoming - Mpls.St.Paul Magazine
The “slow flowers” movement had hit the coasts, but hadn’t quite made it to Minnesota—so she brought it here.
“I found two chemical-free farms in Minnesota, and one in Wisconsin,” she says. “Then I just started asking produce farms if they would grow flowers for me. Most said no, but a few said yes.”
In addition to exclusively selling chemical-free, Minnesota-grown flower subscription packages from her studio, Hoffman also educates other florists and the public on the environmental impact of the floral industry. Here are some of our slow-flower farm faves.
Summer Badawi and Sanna Beek’s crops prove local blossoms can look modern and elegant. “We’re trying to elevate the perception of local flowers,” Badawi says. “They’re not just for mason jars at a barn wedding!” They grow lisianthus, unique foliage, dahlias, and more than 70 other varieties, selling at pop-up events, to florists like Ashley Fox and Kindred Blooms, and directly to couples for weddings.

Liz Dwyer and Curtis Weinrich started Dancing the Land in 2012, partly to make Dwyer’s family farm the perfect venue for their wedding. “Our goal was to grow all the food and flowers for the wedding,... Jul 26, 2019
It's showy lady's slipper time: State flower blooming bright in the northwoods - Bemidji Pioneer
This weekend is likely to be the best of the season to see Minnesota's state flower, the Showy Lady's Slipper, in full bloom. Since 1925 the state has regulated the collection and commercial sale of the species. The showy lady's slipper is one of 43 orchid species that are native to Minnesota and is easily recognizable as a brightly colored orchid that will have one or two blossoms on a single stem. White petals sit on top of a white pouch, or slipper, streaked with pink and hairy oval leaves clasp the stem. Fully grown, the plants reach a height of one to two feet and may show in red, white, or green in addition to the classic pink. If protected, this flower has a long life span - possibly as long as 100 years.
