Looking for Romance?

Are you in the mood for a little romance? If so, then this is the perfect time of the year to explore our flower fields here in the hills of Rainbow, California.  No, I'm not suggesting that Resendiz Brothers is getting into the match making business or that you might possibly discover the love of your life in our flower fields.  However, what you will find is our Waxflower Romance overflowing with gorgeous pink and white blooms, and a exuding such sweet scent that you’ll be convenience ‘Love is in the Air’!  So, this afternoon I decided to venture out into the fields in search of a little Romance of my own – Enjoy!

Pink Duke & Brenda From the Field to Bouquet

When it comes to Protea and the month of February, I can't help but think about our gorgeous Pink Duke and Brenda. In our flower fields both proteas create an amazing display of bright pink surrounded by a bed of deep green leaves, almost like Easter eggs hidden in a huge field of grass. It is such a wonderful sight I almost hate to see them harvested!

Protea Brenda

However, as Easter eggs must be found, Pink Duke and Brenda must be harvested, and in the end enjoyed! So, from the field, to the farm they're tucked into pickup after pickup and eventually, mixed with more amazing flowers to create a stunning California Grown Bouquet!

'Pins' - They're Popping Up Everywhere

It's nearly springtime here in Southern California and our Pincushions are a sure sign that our favorite season is just weeks away. These fabulous blooms are quickly becoming some of the best known members of the Proteaceae family and are easily recognized by their flower-heads with long, conspicuous styles, each one thickened at its apex to form a pollen presenter. Together, the mass of styles look like 'pins' bristling from a pincushion, a similarity that has given rise to the popular name for these Leucospermums. It's obvious that Pincushion are becoming a 'favorite flower' as we've spotted them popping up just about everywhere - Enjoy!
