About Us

Bettye Jenkins is the owner and operated of Bettye’s Flower Design.  A floral designer in Chapel Hill for more than 40 years, she was raised by her Grandmother (Ada Edwards), one of the original “flower ladies” of Chapel Hill.


Flowers have always been a way of life for her family.  Bettye has been in business since the late 60’s when she started out by gathering flowers from area fields and woods for her Grandmother who would go into town to sell them.girl picking flowerbw


Through this experience she learned many things. Through this exposure, she developed a unique love and affection for flowers that has only deepened over time. Recognizing that flowers were such an important part of her life, Bettye continued to build her interest and skills through education in flower design.


This God-given talent has allowed her to serve the community and share her love of flowers.  She creates beautiful designer pieces customized for each occasion and taking into account the personal taste of every client.  In fact, Bettye opened the florist with the customer in mind.  The question she asked herself was, “How can we better service the people?”   This has been her motto from the start. Each custom design is thoughtfully created according to what the customer desires to express in flowers.Bettye’s Flower Design is assessable to all people.  She strives to offer different styles that will suit the taste through a variety of unique customer-focused services.  No budget is too small or too big! Bettye has trained many people to become designers. Some turned the training that they have received from her to become floral business owners. Russell O’Briant is her latest trainee. He is a carpenter by trade and bus driver, but who has become a successful designer.
