D.C.–based online flower delivery company UrbanStems named Lewis Miller, creator of the Flower Flash, as its new creative director earlier this month.

With this new hire, customers can purchase an original Lewis Miller arrangement for the first time. The new line starting at $45 features Miller’s limited edition flower arrangements.

Miller’s new line is available nationwide on UrbanStems’ website now.
