Fresh Tropical Flowers For Valentine’s Day 2016

It’s that time of year again- Valentine’s Day 2016 is fast approaching, and I’ll have another order of fresh cut tropical flowers in from Costa Rica. As always, quantities are limited, and I will be taking paid reservations ahead of time.

I will have them in hand on FRI 2/12 – SAT 2/13 ..they include true freshly cut tropicals flown in directly from the farm: Big fat Heliconias, Red Gingers, and other assorted tropicals flowers and foliage. All bundled in a plastic sleeve  for $25  (includes tax)

Complete tropical floral arrangements in an attractive ceramic container (you keep it) + extra tropical foliage are also available as a $45 add-on.

Truly impress your loved one who is into the Tropics!  These are the kind of flowers you would see on vacation to Costa Rica, Tahiti, Hawaii, etc. You can put them in a tall vase and they will last for weeks. Better than roses for the surfer types!

We only have a limited quantity, so we are taking reservations for them on a first-pay first-served basis.


Pickup will be at Exotica Tropicals Nursery in Indian Harbour Beach- just north of beachside Lowe’s.
