Below are examples of some of the 175 to 200 different cut flowers we grow each year, grouped by color and with approximate bloom times.

About bloomtimes:  although we show general date ranges below the name, please remember that farming depends on a variety of factors beyond our control and, thus, actual bloom dates will vary from year to year.

We expect frost to bring an end to the flower season around October 15th.
