Kids-with-flowers
The AFE (American Floral Endowment) has released several videos aimed at encouraging flower lovers to promote the use and giving of fresh flowers through short videos. Beginning April 16, 2018, a new video promoting flowers will be shared weekly until December of this year. We found this video particularly cute: Kids’ Flower Party https://vimeo.com/264247438 The more we can educate kids, the better off we will...

Hydrangea-Ecuador-greenhouse
Hydrangeas have enjoyed great popularity in the market ever since they started being grown commercially on a larger scale in Medellin, Colombia about 10-15 years ago. The climate and altitude seem to be conducive to these Colombian-grown Hydrangeas. Besides the more basic colors and varieties that are grown in Colombia, neighboring Ecuador has been experimenting with the novelty colors. Peter...
Waxflower-Peru-buckets
Since the end of May, Peruvian Waxflower is once again available for purchase.

Hi Craig, can you tell us a little bit about how you got...
Lily-pollen-free
Pollen-free Lilies not to be sniffed at! Pollen-free Lilies are here. They have actually been around for quite some time, almost 15 years, but it appears that US domestic growers and the Lily industry as a whole are finally committing to the idea of pollen-free Lilies. Might this be the end to unsightly orange-red stains on clothing, upholstery, and tablecloths? We sure...
Drones are not new technology by any means. Now it appears their time has arrived - especially in agriculture. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) - better known as drones - have been used commercially since the early 1980s. Today, however, practical applications for drones are expanding faster than ever in a variety of industries, thanks to robust investments and the relaxing...
Amarine Belladiva Minerva
Is it an Amaryllis? Or is it a Nerine? Amarines are actually from the Nerine family, but the flowers are much larger than regular Nerines. Amarines have been around for quite some time, since 2013, but are only recently being grown in Ecuador which makes this beautiful flower more accessible to the US market. The pink flowers appear like...

Eremurus or Fox Lilies is a dramatic perennial, guaranteed to prompt "Wooooow! What are those?" responses. Chris Hedgepath, an avant-garde designer in Atlanta, recently supplied us with some awesome pictures we wanted to share with you on this post. Featuring several pictures of one of our customer’s creations, this free-lance designer uses the best flowers available at Cut Flower Wholesale, his preferred local...
We are very excited to be going live with our FlowerBuzz initiative very soon! "Why this website?", you might ask. The answer is simple: we feel there is a big void in the flower industry when it comes to the overall promotion of flowers. Sure, there are some places where industry veterans can read news and gossip, and there are some excellent...
