OUR STORY

A history of quality and a passion for greens.

Continental Floral Greens got its start back in the 1950s when the founder first began selling Comador out of the back of his station wagon. Today, under new ownership and leadership, Continental Floral Greens has flourished, cultivating its operations across California, Oregon, Florida, North Carolina, and Washington. Working together as farmers, global distributors, manufacturers, and sellers, we’ve set out to bring an unparalleled new level of quality and breadth of product to our customers—an extraordinary floral experience, from farm to vase.

Our niche is Specialty Farm to Market, a dedication to providing superior quality floral products directly from our farms to wholesalers and mass market retailers.

Our range spans a top-tier Christmas assortment, including wreaths, garlands, and centerpieces, to bulk everyday greenery, dried goods, and Just Add Blooms® greenery bouquets.

We have deep-rooted expertise in floral greenery, proudly cultivating and delivering specialty products that celebrate the beauty and versatility of nature and our farms.
