The House of Flowers (La Casa De las Flores in Spanish) is a Mexican dark comedy-drama television series, created for Netflix. It tells the story of a dysfunctional upper-class Mexican family that owns a prestigious floristry shop and a struggling cabaret, both called The House of Flowers. Its genre is considered “millennial” telenovela by the creators, since it contains several LGBT+ characters, and addresses issues such as homophobia, transphobia, sexism, racism, class inequality, and morality in Mexico.
