Top Cut Flower Favorites
Spring is finally here and we have been busy as bees preparing for the season. Check out our picks for the most popular and prolific cut flower species Applewood Seed Co. has to offer.
Zinnias have been a mainstay here at Applewood Seed Co. for many years. Ranging from pink to orange, violet, and whites, these natives to Mexico make an excellent cut flower for agritourism operations, farmers’ markets, or for pollinator meadows. Our most popular cut flower zinnia is our ‘California Giants’ which we produce from a formula mix, ensuring fields of balanced colors in pink, purple, red, orange, white, and yellow. Other specialty zinnias which make fantastic cuts include ‘Cactus Flowered Mix’ or one of our many specialty color mixtures.
What cut flower arrangement is complete without sunflowers? In hues of red, orange, yellow in a variety of heights, sunflowers burst with color in the back of beds and borders. We carry a variety of heights and branching habits to best fit our customer’s growing conditions and preferences. Favorites (pollen and all) include the dwarf ‘Sunspot’ for its bright cheery heads, ‘Chocolate Cherry’ for its deep burgundy petals, ‘Lemon Queen’ for its classic yellow petals, and ‘Henry Wilde’ with its strong, branching stems which make them ideal for cutting.
