Floral Gossip

The Asian Cut-flower LIST!

The first thing that comes to mind when my mind runs with Asia is the sublime cuisine and a thriving economy.

Asian culture is so rich in ancient history its no wonder why they still hold an important existence is today’s society.

I remember growing up in the 80’s when Chinese food night was a novelty to a 10 year old. I loved using Chinese chop sticks over dinner with little success i struggled to eat my dinner as quickly as i would normally using a spoon or fork.

I was always fascinated with Asian culture, from the cuisine, to their people and of course China’s great wall.

It is not to my surprise to discover over my floral career that the most memorable cut-flowers come from Asia.

Just like their culture i hopelessly fell in love with Asia’s most spoken of and loved cut-flowers.
