2013 SAF Outstanding Varieties Competition

This week the Society of American Florists (SAF) held their 129th Annual Convention in Phoenix, AZ. It was three action packed days of seminars and workshops, thought-provoking breakfast sessions, the Sylvia Cup Design Competition featuring all California Grown Flowers and an Outstanding Varieties Competition featuring the year's best products from the world's top growers! 

The Outstanding Varieties Competition has always been a great way for us to help educate wholesalers, florists, designers and other growers about the amazing Proteaceae we grow, especially some of the lesser known varieties. This year we had four entries competing in three categories: Telopea - Other Cut Flower, Brunia Galpinii - Decorative Foliage, Leucadendron Silver Tree - Potted Foliage Plant and Serruria Blushing Bride - Other Cut Flower. We were thrilled and honored to have our special flowers and foliages recognized among so many other amazing entries - here's how we scored:

Telopea - Other Cut Flower
People's Choice Award and Blue Ribbon Winner

Brunia Galpinii - Decorative Foliage
Best in Class Award and Red Ribbon Winner

Leucadendron Silver Tree - Potted Foliage Plant
Best in Class

Serruia Blushing Bride - Other Cut Flower
Red Ribbon Winner
