Summer Travels
Now that the major flower holidays are behind us, summer is the time for flower shows. The Sun Valley team will be present and reaching out to our customers at these events, and also planning customer visits.

In June, we will be at the International Floriculture Expo in Chicago, then swinging up to Seattle for the American Institute of Floral Designers National Symposium.  Mid-July we will be at the Fresh Produce and Floral Council show in Southern California and in August, we'll participate in the bi-annual Fun N' Sun convention in Carlsbad, CA. The fall will bring the SAF Convention in September, as well as, WFFSA and PMA in October.

All these events are a great opportunity to meet our talented team, get first-hand experience with our flowers and explore how we can work together.

I hope to see you this summer.


Summertime and the Lisianthus Is Easy!

Our Lisianthus production is officially in full swing. The program is weighted towards the most popular color, purple. However, we have all the other colors available as well.

We just filmed a short video with Lane in talking about the biologic controls we use in the lisianthus hoop house. Have a look.

Zooming Zantedeschia

Our Zantedeschia crop is warming up for summer. Commonly referred to as Callas or Colored Callas, our Zants are looking phenomenal.

We have moved 100% of our production to Oxnard, where our expert growers have perfected growing the lily, that isn't really a lily.


June is "California Grown Flowers Month" 

Today California State Senator Mike McGuire will be reading a proclamation on the floor of the State Senate acknowledging the impact California flower farms have on the state economy. This is a kick off for "California Grown Flowers Month," so keep an eye out for the #CAGrown license plate. Learn More Here
