It’s something Wesley Berry Flowers has been doing for years — giving away free roses on the King Holiday.

Today from 10 until 3 — everyone who visits one of 4 metro Detroit locations will be given a dozen roses … free of charge. The only catch is that you then make the promise to keep only one for yourself and give the rest away.

Owner Wesley Berry says he expects to hand out 12,000 roses today. He says it’s his way of giving back to the community that’s supported his family business since 1946.
