A ROSE GARDEN AT THE VOLCANO’S EDGE – PART 1 OF OUR SISAPAMBA VENDOR SPOTLIGHT SERIES

Heather WeickumCustomer’s Corner, Flowers, Production Updates, Roses, Special Upcoming Events, Video

With the Cayambe Volcano as its pristine backdrop, we find a true rose garden.  A rose garden called Sisapamba Rosas & Rosas.  A farm plantation nestled within the rolling, plush hills of Tabacundo Ecuador.  The word Sisapamba, translated from the native Quechua language of Ecuador, translates to rose garden.  In the photograph above, you can see the extraordinary team of employees that make up this great rose farm.

 

 

 

This gentleman is Jose Antonio Bueno.  Jose is the General Manger, and partner of Sisapamba Rosas & Rosas.  I recently had the opportunity to speak to him.  At first, I wanted to pick his brain about the frenzy of the newest “tea stain” color trend.  Specifically I wanted to discuss Toffee Roses.  I wanted to educate our customers about them, their availabilities, etc.  However, as we continued our conversation, I realized that there was so much more great information in the Sisapamba story.  It is a story worth telling.  A story that will inform, educate, and give you a new insight into everything it takes to produce those fragrant roses we have all come to love.

 

 

Join us this week, as we highlight this  exquisite rose farm.  While you are anxiously waiting for tomorrow’s blog post, check out this introductory video about Sisapamba Rosas & Rosas
