Our business dates back to the early 1920's. We began as a small, local, go-to flower shop located in the heart of downtown Rockingham. Hillside's founder, Ella Everett, made it her mission to construct a shop that would bring joy to county residents. Starting with the construction of our iconic green house, Ella grew locally sourced plants; however, she was known for hosting beautiful parties with absolute attention to theme and detail. Once established, she began designing elegant floral displays for local funeral homes. Although ownership has shifted over the decades, the same true passion remains. Hillside is in the business to create beautiful arrangements, timeless decorated and executed events, and provide our customers with top notch customer service. Currently, the Wright family oversees the daily operations of Hillside. Our team of six consists of four designers, one delivery staff, and our customer service manager.
Hillside is nestled in the heart of downtown Rockingham just a block down from the historic courthouse. With our shop being centrally located in Richmond County, we service all three major cities including Ellerbe, Hamlet and Rockingham. As a family grown business, we've passed down our family trade for over three generations. We specialize in original designs that are full of texture, color, and flower variety. Whether you're looking to pickup a bundle of loose flowers or have a dozen roses delivered locally, our team is here for you. We carry a large variety of flowers, plants, and gifts on a daily basis; however, if you can't find something in stock we're more than happy to special order with advanced notice. As third generation owners, we continue with the same passion our founder did and aim to partner with you to bring you the freshest flowers with the friendliest service.
I've called Hillside for 20 years now. Every time, I just ask for the prettiest arrangement for my sister who lives in Rockingham. They never disappoint!

My mother passed away in 2020. It was a very difficult time for my family. Hillside made it so simple to order the family arrangements and everything turned out better than I could have ever asked for. I highly recommend Hillside.

I called Hillside from California looking to send flowers for my moms birthday. As usual I procrastinated and called the day of her birthday. The lady I spoke to knew my mom and said she would take care of my order. I got a phone call from my mom an hour later. She was going on and on about how beautiful her flowers were.

I've used Hillside for years to send flowers. When it came time for moms funeral, I knew who to call right away. I gave them a list of flowers she loved and left the design up to them. It was absolutely exquisite! I was in tears when I walked into that funeral home. She would have been thrilled to see all the yellow roses, tulips, garden roses, and iris designed in her spray. They made her casket look like something right out of a garden. I cannot recommend them enough.
