Edition 1 (The Maiden Voyage!)
Lane DeVries
Lane DeVries, CEO of The Sun Valley Group

Welcome to the inaugural edition of The Sun Valley Horizon. Thank you for taking a moment to learn what is happening on our Farms. Expect this newsletter periodically; it will feature what flowers we have in the ground, what is happening in our community and hopefully give you a little more insight into what we have on the Horizon. Farmers are always looking ahead, whether to the next planting, the next harvest or the next weather pattern. My hope is that this newsletter will be a timely, valuable piece of information to help you succeed in the floral business.
Thanks again.           -Lane


Redwood Grove
French Tulips
Our Redwood Grove French Tulips are as big and bold as the redwoods themselves. Using superior single late bulb stock and optimum growing conditions these tulips reach for the sky. A 26 to 28 inch stem length makes these luxury items stand above the crowd. It is not just their length that leads to their impressive stature, the bloom expands to the size of a Faberg´┐Ż egg. We offer these in the traditional pastels of spring, and for a limited time we are offering an exclusive amount of bright, colorful Frenchies from the Pride Series. Red Pride, Orange Pride, Pink Pride, Purple Pride and Apricot Pride are changing what people think about French Tulips. We are the only US Grower producing the Pride Series, quantities are very limited.

One of Sun Pacific's strong suits is "year-round availability." The Fields Collection highlights this strength pairing our vibrant blooms, with a hearty bunch of greens. For blooms you can choose from Gerbera Daisies, Pink Oriental Lilies, Stargazer Lilies, White Orientals, Asiatic "Love" Lilies or LA Hybrid "Royal" lilies. For the greens, enjoy our beautiful and fragrant combination of Salal, Bay Laurel, Horsetail, Spiked Eucalyptus and Silver Dollar Eucalyptus. This collection is a timeless classic and never goes out of style.

Mother's Day, Ready, Set, Go!
We are preparing for another great Mother's Day here on the Farm. Our lily crop is in the ground, and coming up strong. We are anticipating a bumper crop this year, so talk to your Sales Rep to make sure you have enough lilies, tulips and iris ordered for Mother's Day.

Sun Pacific Bouquet
Our Sun Pacific Bouquet Division is growing! Last year we had record sales, and this trend is continuing as we approach Mother's Day. Customers love our bouquets created at our Oxnard farm, using flowers cut fresh from our Arcata, Oxnard or Baja Farms. Bouquets are an easy, profitable way to keep your sales up through summer. Sun Pacific has many options for Seasonal Bouquets and Holiday Bouquets.

See what's in season


Francisco Bautista
Safety & Training Manager

Francisco has one of the most challenging jobs at Sun Valley. He is responsible for keeping all of our team members SAFE. At first glance farming doesn't seem that dangerous. Yet, when you add in all sorts of machinery, from tractors and fork lifts to packing lines and bunching machines, things can get pretty dicey. Francisco makes sure that all our employees are properly trained and don't take unnecessary risks.
Ever wonder what happens when a glass pane breaks 20 feet up in the roof of a Dutch greenhouse?
