About Sun Valley Floral Farms
Nestled amongst California’s giant redwoods, in the foggy town of Arcata, Sun Valley is creating 365 days of Spring with their sustainably grown tulips! Sun Valley, one of the largest growers of fresh cut flowers in the United States, got it’s start when head grower and CEO Lane Devries was searching for the perfect location to grow premium tulips. The remote, coastal town has a year-round average temperature of 55° which allows the tulips to grow slowly- producing strong stems and deep green foliage.
Of course, growing beautiful tulips year-round takes more than the perfect weather conditions. Sun
Valley alternates between northern and southern hemisphere bulbs. Using state of the art techniques to trick the bulbs into thinking it is Spring allows the farm to grow vibrant blooms 365 days a year!
In 2016, Sun Valley took major steps to become the first American flower farm to become certified sustainable by the Rainforest Alliance™. With this certification, Sun Valley showed their dedication to meeting rigorous environmental and social standards and toward making a positive impact in their community and within the floral industry. So, whether you pick up a bunch of their standard, fringed, parrot, or French tulips, you can be sure that you are purchasing the highest quality tulips available.
