Flowers are the great equalizer. Something to celebrate? Send flowers. Need to perk up a buddy? Done. You’re a total bonehead and forgot your mother-in-law’s birthday? You get the point.

But not all occasions are created equal. Sometimes you need a jaw-dropping, never-gonna-forget-it orchid plant. Others, a bud vase and a single peony will do.

So we set out to find the ten best NYC florists for every want and need. Warning: drooling ahead.

THE BEST $30 DELIVERY

2h Flowers

When you want to brighten someone?s day but don?t exactly want to shell out a Benji, call these girls. Their cheapest option is just $30 for a few simple blooms in a mini apothecary jar (delivery included). Can we get a booyah?

THE BEST $60 DELIVERY

Ode à la Rose

For a slightly more lush choice, this Manhattan-based flower-ordering site will deliver seven pristine roses for $60 (technically $45, plus a $15 delivery fee). Bonus: They’ll last. Our latest bundle of white buds held up for nearly two weeks.

THE MOST RESPONSIBLE

Petal by Pedal

Their deal is this: locally grown blooms (like, from Brooklyn Grange) delivered via bicycle cart. It doesn’t get more socially conscious or environmentally friendly. Oh, and the arrangements are mad cute.

THE BEST BOHO DESIGN

Flower Girl

This, folks, is your go-to gal for rustic, wild arrangements. Spindly greenery abounds. She also makes a mean flower crown if you (or your summer-intern cousin) are in the market for such a thing.

THE IN-LAW IMPRESSER

Prudence Design

You need something clean, traditional and (let’s get real) expensive-looking. These are your guys. They’re known for working with a pretty extensive list of celebrities and big corporations, so you can trust it’ll be good enough for Carol.

THE CLIENT IMPRESSER

Flowers of the World

You need something modern, lush and (OK, again) expensive-looking. Don’t risk an important schmoozing opportunity with just any floral delivery. Shell out the extra dough for this notably chichi Midtown shop.

THE BEST ALL-BOROUGH DELIVERY

Opalia Flowers

Sad but true: Not all florists deliver to Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. This Boerum Hill shop, however, does. Score.

THE BEST ORCHIDS

Banchet Flowers

Whether you’re looking for a long-lasting plant or just a modern, tropical arrangement, hit up this High Line shop. It deals a dozen or so types of orchids and even specializes in rare ones like the spider-shaped brassavola.

The Best Houseplants

The Sill

Then again, sometimes you just need straight-up greenery. You could leave it to a random flower-district distributor who cares nothing about presentation and sends something that involves black plastic and a weird basket. Or you could call these ladies, who pre-plant theirs in chic, modern pots.
