The Lily Pad
Company Description:We are a family-owned and operated farm, based in the Pacific Northwest since 1985. We began our operation as cut flower growers in Olympia, Washington and have expanded into bulb and root production for nation-wide distribution. To a lesser extent we are also importers of fine bulbs and plants, new or rare to the domestic market. Currently, our business is based out of Myrtle Creek, Oregon.
We trial everything that we buy in order to determine its quality and garden-worthiness and provide insight and pertinent first-hand details to our customers. Part of our imported stock becomes planting stock for perpetuation of worthy varieties in our domestic fields. We have entered into contractual terms with certain other West Coast growers to grow some of our bulbs for us. We provide the stock and they provide the labor, land, and technological expertise. This is done partly to boost our capacity and partly to ensure against crop failure. Thus, the majority of our bulbs are domestically produced, even those originating in Holland and the Orient. We do honor plant patent rights and buy directly from authorized growers when dealing with patent-protected varieties.
