Sold exclusively by Organic Bouquet (www.OrganicBouquet.com). These spectacular one of a kind roses measure 5-6 feet in height. On an Ecuadorian farm nestled between two volcanoes at more than 9,600 feet, these stunning Forever Young and Red Intuition red roses grow naturally tall in their native soil. Days of prolonged sunlight and cool nights allow the oversized beauties to flourish beyond expectation. The ultimate in elegance and beauty, each stem boasts a large head which opens to an astonishing 3-4 inches in diameter, creating a sea of lush red rose petals that stay fresher longer.
Out of thousands of rose varieties, only two have been identified that can grow especially long. The World's Tallest Roses are completely natural (non-engineered) and are certified Veriflora™ sustainable. They also hold five additional sustainable certifications.
Veriflora™ is America's first Green Label certification standard for the floral industry. The standard establishes procedures for verifying that floral farming practices are environmentally sustainable and socially responsible. It also assures that floral workers have adequate tools and guidelines to protect the integrity of the certified products from soil preparation through post-harvest handling.
Founder and CEO - Gerald Prolman
Gerald Prolman has a long and successful history of developing and introducing innovative organic perishables on a large scale.
- As an early organic business pioneer, his previous company, Made In Nature, was the first to successfully market a line of organic produce under a brand to mass-market retailers in the United States.
- In 1995, long before the introduction of national organic standards, Prolman created "Guidelines for the Development for National Standards for Organic Production" which he sent to presidents, prime ministers and secretaries of agriculture in more than 100 countries to facilitate the acceleration of a global organic movement.
- Prolman also led the initiation of Veriflora™, an international eco-floral certification standard that is quickly becoming the new Green standard and being adopted by some of the world's largest flower growers.
- Through Organic Bouquet, the undisputed market leader, Gerald has pioneered the eco-flower market which, in 2005, was valued at $16+ million, up 50 percent from 2003.
Organic Bouquet (www.organicbouquet.com), established in 2001, is the market leader in eco-friendly flowers. As a leading voice in the organic movement, it is raising public awareness of critical environmental issues, using sustainably-grown flowers as a catalyst for change.
Organic Bouquet has pioneered the eco-flower market, working with growers around the world who are committed to the highest social and environmental standards. Flowers are grown and harvested using practices that aim to improve the quality of farm working conditions, minimize damage to ecosystems, conserve biodiversity, and enhance environmental quality for future generations.
Organic Bouquet also supports the work of non-profits dedicated to social justice, wildlife conservation, and environmental protection. In the last two years, Organic Bouquet's charitable initiatives have resulted in nearly $200,000 in donations to more than 30 non-profit organizations.
