We carry over 80 varieties of roses weekly. In addition to our retail customers, we specialize in supplying large wedding and special event studios with the variety and quantity they need. Our experienced account managers can guide you in the selection and availability of all of our products.
What is the price structure, and are there any hidden costs?
Prices vary according to length, variety, availability and weekly volume purchased. Seasonal variation may also occur during holiday seasons.
