Cops were the ones who came up roses today after nabbing the "Bouquet Bandit" for pulling off two bank robberies in Manhattan.
Edward Pemberton, 44, was busted just days after cops said he robbed a pair of banks in the Chelsea neighborhood while carrying flowers or potted plants as props, police sources said.
Charges against Pemberton -- who also uses the alias "John Lowe" -- are pending.
Cops said Pemberton, who worked several odd jobs in Chelsea where the robberies took place, lives in Brooklyn. He has had 14 previous arrests, mainly for drugs.
Pemberton was arrested at a relatives' home in Bedford-Stuyvesant, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said.
The chrome-domed Pemberton packed fresh flowers and potted plants instead of a weapon for two heists, and even whipped out a threatening note from a bunch of sweet-smelling perennials demanding that a teller fork over a different kind of green.
The brazen Pemberton strolled into the Bank on Smithtown last Thursday morning bearing a romantic, blooming bouquet -- and bad intentions, police said.
The heist came a week after another horticulture hit by the same suspect at a Capital One bank on West 23rd Street and Ninth Avenue.
But that time, the bandit armed himself with a small potted plant, helping himself to $2,325 before fleeing with his loot -- and the plant, cops said.
