It has been reported by several large US retailers that orange is becoming a year-round colour that people are asking for.

 

Over the years, in the US, the importance of the orange colour in flowers seems to have increased, this is especially true for the retail market. The colour has gained in importance and industry sources there say that in roses, red accounts for 40 percent of sales and the remaining 60 percent consists of remaining colours, of which 15 percent is orange and this percentage is growing.

 

For Americans, especially from June until Thanksgiving when it reaches its peak, orange is in high retail demand. The US public change colours according to the season and over the last three years, growers have been switching to a greater proportion of orange flowers as the colour is becoming even more important and expected to become even more year-round than seasonal as it is now.

 

Juan Carlos Gonzalez, Executive VP at GR Chia S.A.S. in his interview with Floral Daily on the growing demand for orange coloured flowers said, “For our chrysanthemums for example, we are now also seeing a year-round demand, usually this was only grown during the fall season. And we expect the same will happen for the other flower crops.”

 

The Coach Media team found this detailed article on 27 different types of orange flowers on ProFlowers.com and thought our readers interested in growing orange flowers would like to read it to.
