Early Fall
In our little corner of the world, it looks like we are getting into fall sooner than expected. Arcata is always a temperate place, but we just experienced the coldest week 33 in 16 years. This doesn't affect our crops much, but when you hear your furnace click on in mid- August, it's a little unusual.

That said, I am looking forward to fall. Our Southern Hemisphere tulips start next week, our fall colored LA Hybrid lilies look great, and our fall themed lines of bouquets are ready to go.  Across the country the kids are headed back to school and Labor Day is coming this weekend.

As a farmer, I learned long ago, that you must follow the seasons lead. Happy Fall.

Talk to your Sales Rep. to get your SAMPLE 1/2 L of our Callas.

Our Zantedeschia crop is still going strong, and we want to prove it to you.

For our current customers, we are happy to add a 1/2 L box of callas to your order, so you can test drive these beauties. We'll be harvesting into November so it's a perfect time to get reacquainted with our Z-Callas.   
(Yes, samples...pick up the phone!)

Full Throttle Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are being bought as fast as we can pick them, but as you can imaging....we can pick them pretty fast.

We have fresh hydrangea in all the classic colors and we have ANTIQUES with their kaleidoscope of colors and textures. We have new varieties like Amethyst and Revolution, we have classics like  Opal and Emerald.

Simply put:  "It's On!"

Cotinus Pairings

You are likely familiar with Sun Valley's Cotinus, aka Smoke Bush.

This tall, dark burgundy foliage is perhaps the perfect fall accent.  

Have you explored using it in consumer bunches?  Sunflowers and cotinus are beautiful and our huge African Lady lilies paired with cotinus is striking.  Any my personal fav. Cotinus, Sunflowers and Royal Sunset lilies.
