D.C.–based online flower delivery company UrbanStems named Lewis Miller, creator of the Flower Flash, as its new creative director earlier this month. Founded in 2014 by Ajay Kori, the company was created after Kori realized the flower delivery system needed a fresh new boost. 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.
