Flower 411: Green Viburnum, Peonies & More

Flower 411



Our amazing purchasing department has put together a great summary of what is going on in the world of cut flowers. Please read through so that you have the most up-to-date flower 411!

Availability on California field crops are very low. The summer heat, the drought, high winds, and shorter days are all creating a shortage of product. Obvious items that we’re struggling with include stock, hybrid delphinium, larkspur, bupleurum, and Queen Anne’s lace. Every wholesaler in the US is busy, causing every farm to be busy as well. The growers are really struggling to keep up with demands.

We receive many last minute orders. However this time of year the deck is stacked against our late orders. The growers simply cannot cover the HUGE orders we drop on them at 1 o’clock on Thursday afternoon for the next day. We are not giving these growers even a full 24 hours to cut, process, and pack their flowers at a time when the demand is so high, they sell out every day. Last minute orders run a very high chance of not being covered. So please strive to place your orders in advanced – this will greatly help us all out.

 

Product Notes (please share!)

  • Anemones very limited.
  • Viburnum green snowball will be starting this week.
  • Peonies from Chile  will be starting very soon, within 10 days, weather permitting.
  • Ranunculus still rolling in from Chile, burgundy is not available.
  • African product will continue coming.
  • Local pink protea have started.
  • Outdoor field crops in California are very limited as stated above. We’re struggling to cover orders for hybrid Delphinium, larkspur, Queen Anne’s and chocolate lace, bupleurum, craspedia, bouvardia, and especially on stock. Stock does not do well when its hot and crops have been damaged/destroyed. This will continue to be a problem until new crops start in winter. We’re covering maybe 40% of stock orders right now.
  • Scabiosa is another victim of the heat wave.
  • Japanese flowers – we won’t have anything coming from there for a while, maybe a month. When production improves we can consider placing orders.
  • Oregon products are winding down quickly and we’re one cold night away from being 100% Christmas/Holiday greens and berries. This area has had a strong summer of production but many things started early, and continue to come early. Ilex berry is in full color right now, came early and may finish early. Fall leaves are tough to find now, as they tend to fall off right after they change color. Local production of hydrangea is completely done.
  • Dahlias are going down in production and head size, while demand is sky high.
  • Wax from Peru is winding down. Some farms no longer have a true white variety, purple is finished, pink shades are limited. We may bring in some imports from Australia, but it is pricey.
  • Calcynia/thrytomene probably finished within a week.
  • Callas – prices inching up on fall colors. True red, burgundy and orange are not available from California growers. For imported callas, you can expect to see high prices on fall colors.
  • Fall colored product from Colombia – poms, carns, minis..they seem to have started too early. Moonvista carns are still limited.
  • Dutch production is picking up. We now have Dutch Boxlots each week.
