What do you look for when searching for wholesale roses in Los Angeles?  Beauty?  You want the latest varieties and a vast assortment of dazzling colors and delicate hues to choose from.  Longevity?  You want roses that have just been cut so that you know their best days are still ahead of them.  Reliability?  If you’re planning a wedding or other major event, we know you want to trust that your LA rose provider is going to deliver on time.

But what about History?  When you’re choosing Los Angeles wholesale roses do you take into account where they came from?  You should.  The birthplace of your roses says a lot about the flower’s quality and social impact.  Flowerlink’s roses come from family-owned farms in the heart of Ecuador.  The country’s year-round warm climate is ideal for growing roses – quality that is undeniable when you realize that nearly a ¼ of all roses sold in the United States come from Ecuador.  Now Ecuador has become one of the world’s top exporters of quality roses with thousands of families being able to make a life for themselves working in the flourishing cut flower industry.

But the roses aren’t just beautiful.  Flowerlink’s are produced under the strictest Fair Trade regulations, so you know they’re grown without negatively impacting the people that tend the farms or the environment that makes them bloom.

National Geographic has even produced a video documentary showing the process of rose production in the country of Ecuador and how it’s changed the landscape and economy of the South American nation.  You can watch it for yourself below.

Having provided wholesale roses in Los Angeles and Orange County for ten years, we know that florists, supermarkets, and event planners are always looking for the latest varieties.  You want those exclusive roses, the ones yet to be seen… one’s that have been bred for both breath-taking beauty and longevity.

To breed the perfect rose, you must have the perfect environment.   Many climates simply aren’t sustainable for growing premium roses.  High humidity can cultivate disease-causing pathogens and water that has too much sodium or soil with a pH that is too high can keep roses from flourishing.  Flowerlink’s farms in Ecuador have the optimal temperature and are tended by devoted workers that ensure the roses our farms produce are some of the best in the world.  That’s why many of the world’s top rose breeders have chosen the country of Ecuador to grow many or their most innovative varieties.

Schreurs is one of those breeders.  The family-owned company has been breeding, propagating, and marketing roses for over half a century.  While they are headquartered near Aalsmeer in the Netherlands, they have subsidiaries in Colombia, Kenya and of course in Ecuador.  Schreurs is able to boast that growers in over 100 countries have chosen their varieties, making them one of the leading companies in their field.

Recently Schreurs gave a sneak peak at some of their latest varieties, and we wanted to share them with you as well.   Just how new are these varieties?  They are yet to be named and these pics are the first available images from their greenhouse.  Which is your favorite?
