Foliage, Liliums, Gladiolus, Iris, Tulips & Ornithogalum, Pahiopedilum Insigne, Zantedeschia (Calla), and Heliconias, amongest other varieties.
The production of Cymbidium (30.000 plants) of many varieties, of different colours and tones, are cultivated in nurseries over a total area of approximately 2 hectares (20.000 m2).
The production in nursery houses, benefits the natural development of the flower and guarantees its excellent quality and long life span. The Cymbidium spikes are classified according to quality, form and size of bloom and are traded by grades of (5-8), (9-12), (13-16) and (+16), blooms per spike.
The production of Proteas & Similar species occupy an area of about 8 hectares (80.000 m2), on open-air fields, with the main species being:
- Proteas : Cynaroides (King), Pink Ice, Susara, Nerifolia, Lady Di, Andrea, Barbigera (Queen), Magnifica, Grandiceps, Sylvia, Niobe, Sheila;
- Leucospermums : Cordifolium, Vlam, High Gold, Scarlett Ribbon;
- Leucadendrons : Safari Sunset, Inca Gold, Pom Pom, Pisa, Rosette, Long Tom, Chameleon, Gold Strike;
- Other : Waratahs Telopeas, Banksias, Brunia Albiflora.
New varieties are constantly being experimented to offer a larger selection of Proteas and satisfy the demanding market requirements.
Our concern for updating with new varieties and innovating our production methods, is constant, and we rely on assistance from international consultants and specialists for this. The Heads of departments participate regularly in conferences and lectures, about production & trade of Cymbidiums and Proteas, througout the world.
On a research level, new varieties and species of fresh cut flower and plants, were introduced over the past few years. The study into new options is very important and continues at full steam, so as to diversify our supply of products, taking advantge of the existing synergies.
Florialis still dedicates itself to the importing of a great variety of interesting plants, this to complement its main activity and fill the low production months.
