Arizona's Specialty Cut Flower Growers
Valley Cut Flower Growers
These are not all of the cut flower growers in the state of Arizona. They are also not everyone in my Cut Flower network that I source from. However, these are the businesses I buy from most consistently!
John's Plant Adventures
John is paving way for his legacy in Specialty Cut Flowers in Arizona! His passion for growing in the desert and learning floral arranging is inspiring. John is someone I buy with most consistently. He strives to have a wide variety of flowers during the cut flower season. His background in Horticulture makes him a great resource. John also sells plant plugs and seeds to help you start your own flower garden! He offers a Garden Consultation Service, and will consult with your landscaper to help them care for your flowers.

The Potter's Bench
Stephanie is a Master Gardener and it really shows! Not only does she grow specialty cut flowers, but she has a special love for garden roses. She is one of my "Go-To Gals" for flower questions, especially roses! Recently, Stephanie has expanded her growing area, so she can grow more specialty cut flowers and host a flower garden class. You can learn from the Master on how to grow flowers in AZ. She is someone I constantly learn from, and look forward to soaking up more of her gardening knowledge. Be on the look out for a new gardening book authored by her as well!
There are several micro farms that I buy from in Chandler. However, they are not ready to be blasted to the internet, yet! Each of these women are your "Go Getters". I absolutely love their enthusiasm for flowers, compassion for each other, and how they know the best foraging spots in their area. It's always a good time picking up from these women, and grabbing tumbleweeds along the way!
Anne's Garden Fresh
Anne is like my Desert Gardening Encyclopedia. She has such a wealth of knowledge from her years of growing everything from specialty cut flowers, native plants, and fruit trees in the desert. Each time I pick up an order, I know to plan for at least one extra hour with her. We always get to talking about growing and the slow flower movement. I try to be a sponge that soaks up her knowledge!
Whipstone Farm, Paulden AZ
If you’ve ever been up to Prescott on a Saturday and attended the Farmer’s Market there’s a good chance you’ve seen Shanti and her Whipstone Farm Crew! They grow beautiful flowers and delicious food. Shanti has the largest flower selection of anyone I buy from. She has several food and flower clients in the valley, so I am able to meet her delivery driver to get blooms weekly. Because Whipstone Farm is located in Paulden, they are in a different growing zone than the valley is. This allows me to get short lived valley blooms, like ranunculus, for a few weeks longer!
