Family Roots:
Narcissus is a genus of about fifty species of bulbous perennials -- and members of the amarillidaceae family. Many thousands of cultivars have been developed.

Greenhouse Daffodil

Personality:
Greenhouse Daffodils are harvested with foliage -- and are considerably taller than field grown. Despite their taller stature -- they have slightly smaller diameter blooms. Daffodils are harvested with their buds closed to protect them in transit and allow for much greater vase-life.

Availability:
Late December through mid-February

Stem Length:
14-20 inches

Flower size:
Open blooms vary from 2-4'' in diameter.

Care & Handling:
Dry Storage - Daffodils (still in ''tight-bud'' stage) may be dry-stored at 32-36° for several days.

Wet Storage - cut 1/2 inch off base of stem and place in fresh water. Place in display cooler for maximum vase-life.

Special Notes:
Care should be taken when re-cutting stems to avoid cutting through any foliage…and, when Daffodil stems are cut they emit a clear sap which can be toxic to freshly cut tulips. Always re-hydrate daffodils and tulips in separate containers.

Field Daffodil:

Personality:
Field Daffodils are harvested without any foliage -- and are often cut slightly below soil level. When this occurs -- the cut ends will be pale green or white…but, will have no effect on vase-life.Daffodils are harvested with their buds closed to protect them in transit and improve vase-life.

Availability:
Late February through early April

Stem Length:
10-14 inches

Flower size:
Open blooms vary from 3-5'' in diameter.

Care & Handling:
Dry Storage - Daffodils (still in ''tight-bud'' stage) may be dry-stored at 32-36° for several days.

Wet Storage - cut 1/2 inch off base of stem and place in fresh water. Place in display cooler for maximum vase-life.

Special Notes:
When Daffodil stems are cut they emit a clear sap which can be toxic to freshly cut tulips. Always re-hydrate daffodils and tulips in separate containers


Family Roots:
Tulip is a genus of over 100 species of spring-flowering bulbous perennials. Tulip varieties are divided into 15 groups (or Divisions)-- based primarily on the characteristics of the bloom.

Greenhouse Tulips

Personality:
Tulips thrive in habitats with dry summers and cold winters…and are grown throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America. When ''forced'' into bloom in the protected environment of a greenhouse -- the bright colors of spring are available in the middle of winter.

Availability:
Late December through mid-May.

Stem Length:
12 - 18 inches

Flower size:
Blooms vary from 2-3'' in length.

Care & Handling:
Dry Storage - Tulips (still in ''tight-bud'' stage) may be dry-stored at 32-36 degrees for several days.

Wet Storage - Cut a half inch off base of stem and place in fresh water. Tulips can stretch up to four inches after hydration -- care should be taken to allow for this growth if flowers will be stored or displayed on tiers or shelves. Protect from drafts, direct sun or heating vents. Always hydrate tulips seperately from daffodils -- as daffodil sap is toxic to tulips.

Field Tulips

Personality:
Tulips thrive in habitats with dry summers and cold winters…and are grown throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East and North America. Field-Grown varieties often include novelties (parrots, lily-flowered, etc.) -- and ''coupe'' or ''French'' varieties known for their larger blooms and stems.

Availability:
Mid-March through early-April.

Stem Length:
12 - 18 inches (''French'' up to 20'')

Flower size:
Blooms vary from 2-4'' in length.

Care & Handling:
Dry Storage - Tulips (still in ''tight-bud'' stage) may be dry-stored at 32-36 degrees for several days.

Wet Storage - Cut a half inch off base of stem and place in fresh water. Tulips can stretch up to four inches after hydration -- care should be taken to allow for this growth if flowers will be stored or displayed on tiers or shelves. Protect from drafts, direct sun or heating vents. Always hydrate tulips seperately from daffodils -- as daffodil sap is toxic to tulips.


Family Roots:
Genus of 30+ species of clump-forming herbaceous perennials, shrubs and subshrubs (tree peonies). Native to Europe, Asia and western North America. Most cultivars are derived from P. lactiflora and bloom in late spring through early summer.

Personality:
Peony flowers grow in several forms: single, semi-double, double (including the 'bomb-type' with a central mound of petals) and Japanese (also known as anemone-form). Peonies prefer cold nights and warm days -- and grow very well in the temperate coastal climate of the Pacific NW.

Availability:
Mid-May through early July

Stem Length:
16-24 inches

Bloom size:
Open blooms vary from 3-5'' in diameter

Care & Handling:
Dry Storage - Peonies (still in ''tight-bud'' stage) may be dry-stored at 32-36 degrees for several days.

Wet Storage - cut 1/2 inch off base of stem and place loosely (to allow for flower development) into fresh warm water. Display in cooler for maximum vase-life.

Comments:
Peonies are ethylene-sensitive -- care should be taken to protect them from damage. Water should be freshened every other day to maximize vase life.


Family Roots:
Gladiolus is a genus of over 150 species of cormous perennials. Over 10,000 cultivars have been developed for cutting, exhibition and garden use.

Personality:
Gladiolus are grown for their showy flower spikes - but for cut-flower use - they are harvested with their blooms closed which protects them from transportation damage - and allows for maximum vase-life.

Availability:
Late August through early October

Stem Length:
32 - 38 inches

Flower Size:
Open blooms vary from 2-4 in diameter.

Care & Handling:
Dry Storage - Gladiolus (still in tight-bud stage) may be dry-stored at 32-36 degress for several days.

Wet Storage - cut 1 inch off base of stem and place in fresh water. Gladiolus are very sturdy – and may be displayed at cool room temperature – away from drafts or heating vents.
