Best Tree in the Florist

McPhail Florist & Greenhouse

One of the last of the old-timers on Barton Springs Road, this Forties-era florist business looks like the type of curious, quaint cottage you might stumble upon in a forest. And it's painted deep green to match. The star attraction here, at least from the outside, is the enormous tree growing inside the teeny, tiny courtyard, its branches spreading out wide in every direction. It's an inviting little shop and greenhouse you'll want to visit before the winds of change blow across this section of the roadway. Just look for the giant tree cropping out from the florist.
