World's Tallest Roses Reign at 2007 Rose Parade
www.OrganicBouquet.com makes history with spectacular 5+ foot tall eco-blooms
Pasadena, Calif. (December 28, 2006) – Billions of flowers have adorned the floats of the Rose Parade in its 117-year history, but never a rose that stands as tall as the Rose Queen herself… until this year.
the eco-flower pioneer, announces the debut of the World's Tallest Roses at the
118th Rose Parade in Pasadena, where they will grace the float of the 89th Rose
Queen, Mary McCluggage, as well as the Santa Fe Springs float.
The first certified sustainably grown flowers ever used in Rose Parade history, these magnificent red roses grow naturally 5-6 feet tall, each stem boasting a large head which opens to an astonishing four inches in diameter, creating a sea of lush red rose petals.
"These spectacular roses fit perfectly with the parade's theme, Our Good Nature," said Gerald Prolman, founder and CEO of www.OrganicBouquet.com. "The beauty of even the most stunning flower is enhanced when it is grown in a socially and environmentally responsible manner."
How do these roses get so big? A combination of natural factors have come together to create this extreme rose. At the equator, on an Ecuadorian farm, nestled between two volcanoes at more than 9,600 feet, Organic Bouquet's World's Tallest Roses enjoy days of prolonged sunlight and cool nights which allow these super-sized beauties to flourish beyond expectation.
These natural blooms are non-genetically engineered and are certified sustainably grown by Veriflora™, an international eco-floral certification standard that verifies social, environmental, ecological, and quality management practices.
Mr. Prolman, who established www.OrganicBouquet.com in 2001, has led the eco-flower market by developing supplies in more than five countries and promoting the need for eco-flowers on a global scale.
