About California Cut Flower Commision
Innovator. Trendsetter. Fashion Forward. California sets the pace for so much of our lives, from technology to cuisine to entertainment. So its no wonder the Golden State takes the lead when it comes to floral trends. Californias commercial cut flower industry is very much a part of this visionary mindset. Growers arent just at the cutting edge of developing growing techniques that bring vibrant, beautiful flowers to the market in an environmentally friendly way, but they also focus on new trends and search out ways to marry imagination to reality, whether it be new colors, flower types or ways to make old favorites even better.

Blessed with many micro-climates, California is able to produce hundreds of different flowers, botanicals, and cut greens, from floral staples to the latest up-and-coming varieties. In fact, we produce more than 70 percent of all domestically grown, commercially sold cut flowers in the United States. With the states long growing season, many varieties are available year-round, providing stable supplies of high-quality flowers.
Staying informed of the latest color, design and cultural trends is a critical ingredient to success in a competitive market. Recognizing the importance of trends, California growers are pleased to sponsor this brochure.
