Superior Tulips
Not all tulips are created equal.

Our soil grown tulips are the industry gold standard. If you care about vase life, stem strength, and color saturation, than you know Sun Valley grows the best tulips available.

Lane is a fourth generation tulip grower, and our access to the very best bulb stock and the hottest varieties is unparallelled.  Sun Valley stands for dependable, year-round quality. 

Our Zantedeschia, aka Colored Callas, are ready to go. This popular flower is quickly becoming a Sun Valley standard.

We are growing them in both Oxnard and Arcata, so we have availability through late fall.
These flowers boast a long vase life, and a quick look at Pintrest will show you how in-demand they are, especially as wedding season is about to kick into high gear.

We have a new blog post about our Z-Callas, have a look.


What's Hot?

We were just in San Francisco at The DeYoung Museum, "Bouquets to Art" Gala.  These impressive events are held all over the country, and they are a great opportunity to see what cutting edge designers are doing and what flowers are hot.

For Sun Valley flowers, we saw many designs with Ornithogalum, Green Ball Dianthus, Z-Callas, Iris, Delphinium, and Fancy Tulips, such as Crispas and Parrotts.

For non-Sun Valley product we saw Orchids and Protea being used extensively.

What trends are you seeing, in your business, at your shop or in your department?
