In 2018 Oregon Coastal Flowers introduces black tulip magnolia branches into the floral market. We have planted nearly 500 of these trees on our farm. A very small 2′ tree goes for $65, wow!

Mind you it came from a lifetime of working hard on sales and tough lessons, but January and February were for the record books. At the end of February we stocked 3 large coolers with cherry to extend their season into May. Our last shipment of cherry filled the cooler to the brim, this was one week prior to the lockdown from Covid. 98% of this cherry was..Read More
