What makes Ecuadorian Roses so special?
Roses are nature's most beautiful gift — long coveted for their exceptional beauty, sweet fragrance and as the ultimate symbol of our lasting love. Ecuadorian Roses are known for their superior quality and long-lasting beauty.
Roses from Ecuador have:
- larger buds, fuller blooms
- stronger stems
- more vibrant colors
- longer vase life
Ecuador has the most unique growing conditions — and roses — in the world
Our farms are located high in the Andes Mountains. This means our flowers grow in high altitude over rich, volcanic soil and under perpendicular sunrays with longer hours of daylight than you can find anywhere else. These conditions stimulate photosynthesis — maximizing plant metabolism, growth and color intensity — giving them unique, vibrant color and the strongest, sweetest scent!
- Ecuadorian roses grow longer, thicker and heartier stems, making them the premium rose choice.
- Ecuadorian roses produce flowers with larger buds and fuller blooms — unlike any you’ve ever seen.
- Ecuadorian roses are stronger and remain fresh for the longest period of time — an expected vase life of 7+ days.
Because of these unmatched growing conditions and perfect temperatures, they have a much longer vase life. They are a favorite choice in bouquets, centerpieces, and other floral arrangements and special event decor. Their sweet scent makes them popular for weddings, anniversaries, and other special occasions.
Ecuadorian roses are one of a kind — offering more colors to choose from, in almost every color imaginable . . . rich shades of red, pink, white, lavender, purple, orange, yellow and green — more varieties and more vibrant and colorful than any other rose, because they grow closer to the equator where they bask in the sunlight —up to 12 hours a day.
Ecuadorian flower farms help protect us and our planet
Our roses are sustainably-grown, with careful attention to the environment and the health of our farmers. Taking care of the water, the land and the air—and every one of our employees and the communities we live in — is priority number one.
We have earned both Rainforest Alliance and Flor Ecuador certifications, and support our farmers in every way to protect them and our natural resources. Our certified farms practice water conservation, waste management, soil conservation and emissions mitigation. Farms also comply with strict guidelines that promote fair and safe working conditions.
And rose farms are especially beneficial to our ecosystems — providing vital pollen and nectar for bees and butterflies.
It’s no surprise that that roses from Ecuador have become the most popular with flower lovers around the world and a favorite among wedding planners, event planners and DIYers — and considered one of the best gifts for a special occasion such as Valentine’s Day, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and Mother’s Day!
