Q: What do you specialize in?
We have farms in CA, FL, TX and WA and have unique partnerships with farms in Mexico and Central America to offer an unsurpassed variety of greens. We have the traditional leatherleaf, comador, and salal as well as speciality greens such as olive branch and magnolia. We offer our greens in bulk or in beautiful finished designs – such as wreaths, garlands and greens bouquets. We create stunning custom garlands or greens wreaths for weddings or events.
We own 5,300 acres of our very own High Mountain Blue Noble. Our noble is unique – it’s grown in it’s natural environment, at the base of Mount St Helens, giving it a silver-blue color, a denser needle span and longest needle retention of any noble available. We use our signature noble as the base in all of our exceptional, hand-made Christmas products.

Q: Where can customers learn more about Continental Floral Greens and the services you provide?
We recently launched our new website (cfgreens.com). The site is gorgeous visual experience of our farms, our greens and our philosophy and offers a searchable greens catalog. With our newest opening in the SoCal Flower Market, we are able to offer all of our products to the LA buyer, whether they need just one more bunch or a full, weekly truckload – we offer the freshest greens possible, direct from our farms.
Q: Where do you find your inspiration for your floral designs?
I like to let the greens be the “hero” in any new design. Whether it’s a Christmas wreath made with our signature High Mountain Blue Noble or a large greens arrangement. Greens are so versatile – with so many options in color, line and texture, the possibilities are endless. We are seeing more and more wedding designs using just greens – archways, table runners, place settings, even bridal bouquets, and the end result is really natural, lush and elegant. And when the time is right, adding vibrant blooms to any farm fresh greens for a contrast in color is always a winner!
