Whether you’re a casual spring flower arranger or a Skagit Valley Tulip Festival diehard, you’ll love this year’s crop of fresh tulips from Oregon Flowers.
Yes, their tulips are fresh and colorful. But their history is pretty beautiful, too. Owner Tyler Meskers’ parents, Martin and Helene, emigrated in 1979 from Holland—arguably the center of the tulip world—to the tulip-friendly climate of the Willamette Valley. Here, they parlayed their deep tulip knowledge (and big tulip love) into a legacy business.
Now in its third generation of family ownership, Oregon Flowers still maintains its original standard: “Flowers grown with a Dutch touch.” Translation: high-quality, consistently fresh tulips in pretty much all colors, all types, and all kinds of eye-popping gorgeousness. Nearly year round, their temperature-controlled greenhouses are lush and bursting with bulbs growing in dark, rich Willamette Valley soil.
