adofus has a really pretty flower selection and a nice color catalog has a nice catalog on plain paper with a mix of flowers, supplies, and veggies.

There are a bunch of em around that offer catalogs, do a google search for flower seed catclogs, or go to the link below and it links you to several good ones. Most, if not all, are free:;aqi=g4g-m4&aql=&oq=flower+seed+cat&fp=ed0664e20ac2de1f

I would first suggest you check out The Garden Watchdog and look at the feedback for every company listed here. Everyone has a different experience, but it will help you ascertain where you may want to spend your money and get the best value. There is also a very good Rate and Review consumers forum on GardenWeb you can also look at.

You might want to check the GW "Rate and Review Vendors" forum. There's a number of seed companies listed with some feedback. I agree with Girlgroupgirl's suggestion to check out any company you plan on buying from on Garden Watchdog.

The other thing you could do is offer up some of your veggie seeds here on GW for a trade of flower seeds, before you spend more money elsewhere. I really like Diane's Seeds and Swallowtail Gardens.
