Grower and Breeder Information

Though many novelty flowers can be grown locally by specialized horticulturists, not all flower crops can grow anywhere. Some regions with particular microclimates lend themselves well to specialization in novelty commercial flower production such as California, Peru, Holland, Israël, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

In North America, flowers considered Novelty flowers:
  • typically require special or difficult production conditions which can be tricky to replicate.  
  • can have scant productivity which can drive up end costs
  • can have short, erratic field growing cycles
  • are best suited for quick short travel as opposed to flying or trucking
