Just in time for Valentine's Day, UrbanStems, a unique flower delivery startup, has launched in Austin. Everything at UrbanStems is done in-house, from the bouquet designs to the actual delivery. The best part? Same-day delivery is free.

A rotating, seasonal selection features fresh bouquets and succulent planters with prices as low as $35. The current lineup includes cute V-Day-themed arrangements with celebrity names like The Taylor, The Gaga, and The Adele.

While the 3-year-old company specializes in same-day delivery, UrbanStems also offers pre-orders, which come in handy during the holiday season. The service is now available in the Central Austin area (view a full list of ZIP codes here).

UrbanStems also operates in Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and its hometown of Washington. Austin is the first Texas city to score the service, but UrbanStems will grow into Houston and Dallas later this spring.
