If you are looking to buy flowers in Beijing (real or fake ones), here is the place. On the same road as the American embassy. 1st floor is where all the real flowers are. I bought my wedding bouquets from the shop on the right corner (next to the one that sells ribbons). The lady was very patient and did a great job. Make sure you bargain for your price!!

This is close to the American embassy (well...the one that you go for passport and visa services). It has great prices on flowers and plants. As a foreigner, you will have to bargain a little more.
