THE SUN VALLEY GROUP, INC grew from small beginnings in Myrtle Point, Oregon. A high school Agriculture teacher and one of his students founded the farm with five acres of irises and a few rows of daffodils.
The business purchased an additional farm location in Arcata, California in 1969, naming the new location Sun Valley Bulb Farm. The cool coastal climate and fertile soil proved to be an excellent place to grow bulb flowers and seasonal field crops. Sun Valleys business expanded with the hybridizing of oriental lilies such as the well-known Stargazer. Demand for Sun Valleys flowers grew rapidly, and in 1984 the farm saw completion of its first Dutch glass greenhouse, allowing Sun Valley to grow lilies year round.
The Sun Valley commitment is simple, to create the best floral experience through operational excellence. Combining a commitment to quality control, state-of-the-art technologies, the best bulb and flower stock, superb growing conditions, and a workforce of dedicated team members, Sun Valley brings flowers to market, Creating a World of Color.
