About Our Flowers
Our fresh cut flowers are colorful and long lasting. They work well to fill a vase on your kitchen table, or to celebrate a wedding or other special event. Our cut flowers are usually in abundance, from larkspur and snapdragons in April through celosia and sunflowers in September (and sometimes October, depending on the weather). Below are examples of the flowers that we have available.

We started our cut flowers growing a few flowers around the yard, and now we have about an acre of flowers we are harvesting at any time. We grow a few perennials, but our main focus is annual cut flowers. Sunflowers and zinnias are long-time favorites, and we also love to add new and interesting colors and textures to our mixed bouquets, with celosia, centaurea, ornamental millet, and many others flowers.
In the spring, there are snapdragons, larkspur, delphiniums, dianthus, and more. The bouquets during this time of year are extra long-lasting and come in around the same time as our strawberries and cool season vegetables.
In the warmer months, the flowers are warm and vibrant colors. We have a multitude of sunflowers; the most showy is the heirloom variety we call "Granddaddy Jones." It was grown by Karen's grandfather, Wesley Jones, in Pinnacle, NC. The hot days also mean every color of zinnia from red to green to purple is in bloom. Celosia, yarrow, and ageratum are just a few of the smaller bits of color we add to our bouquets.
