"The World's Most Luxurious Roses"
Palatial Petals® are proud to introduce our exclusive line of Timeless Luxury Roses™, premium-cut Ecuadorian roses grown 3,200 meters above sea level on our own boutique farm near the Cayambe volcano: Ecuador’s 3rd highest mountain and the coldest place on the equator. Timeless Luxury Roses™ come packed with many benefits including larger heads, more vibrant colors and a superior quality of flower. The altitude at this impressive height provides our roses with intense lighting which extends the cultivation process while also enhancing the unique natural hues of our distinctive rose petals.
WHY HIGH ALTITUDE?
Timeless Luxury Roses™ are bred at a much higher altitude than most roses, equipping them with larger heads, thicker foliage and more vibrant colors. The altitude not only greatly improves the rose’s quality and aesthetic appearance, but also extends the cultivation period of these premium roses. “Roses grown at high altitude have a much longer growing cycle than those harvested at sea level, up to fifteen weeks as opposed to eight, so it is perfect micro-climate to produce the world's most impeccable rose buds,” says Christopher, CEO of Palatial Petals®.
While most Ecuadorian roses are cultivated at an altitude of between 2,500 and 2,800 meters, Timeless Luxury™ Roses will have longer production value because of its prime location 3,200 meters high. According to Christopher, “The real advantage is that you get natural light all year round, so you can grow in winter and don’t have to use any kind of artificial illumination.”
These resilient roses experience intense lighting year-round which greatly enhances the color of the petals. “The cold nights mean that you get a lot of bi-colors, with contrasting hues on the edges and the insides of petals, these desirable attributes have led to Palatial Petals® becoming one of the world's leading exclusive luxury floral brands,” says Christopher.
WHY VOLCANIC SOIL?
Timeless Luxury Roses™ are grown on virgin black soil native to the slopes of the Cayambe volcano. This soil is enriched with healthy beneficial micro-organisms that help to extend the box-life of the roses.
The soil is capable of maintaining nutrients and humidity because it isn’t sandy, nor does it contain any pebbles or debris. In fact, half of its nutrients come naturally from organic material which completely eradicates the use of chemical fertilizers.
At our boutique farm, quality is never sacrificed. Our roses have been meticulously developed under rigorous industry-leading standards, thanks in large part to the passionate and dedicated local horticultural experts that work together on our farm to form a world-class operation producing what we believe to be "The World's Most Luxurious Roses™".
