When Oliver Queen and Dinah Lance moved from Star City to Seattle, they lived in an apartment above Dinah's flower shop, the Sherwood Florist - a play on Oliver's Robin Hood influence. The ground floor was the shop itself, while the second floor was Dinah's living space, and the third floor was Oliver's. The florist served as the base of operations for both Black Canary and Green Arrow for the duration of their residence in Seattle.
- The shop's name is a play on “Sherwood Forest”, the home of Robin Hood, who was a significant inspiration to Oliver Queen in the creation of his Green Arrow persona.
- In 1997, Matchbox Collectibles released a 1:47 die-cast “Sherwood Florist” 1918 Crossley Floral Delivery Truck.
