combines more than just the names of two companies - Florema and Optimara.
Florema, based in the Netherlands, is the world's largest grower of Elatior
Begonias and is among the leading producers of Europe's Cyclamen, Hydrangeas,
Impatiens and other plants. Optimara, whose North American operation
is located in Nashville, Tennessee, is the world's largest grower of African
Violets and is the acknowledged leader of both R&D and marketing for their
industry. Together, these two companies provide Floremara with a formidable
combination of experience and expertise in the cultivation, research and marketing
of flowering plants.
Floremara, which is based
in Nashville, offers unrooted cuttings for Elatior Begonias, New Guinea
Impatiens and Poinsettias. U.S. and Canadian growers can order cuttings
and rooted plugs for Elatior, Volcano and Solenia varieties. Continuing
the long tradition that has been the hallmark of both Florema and Optimara,
Floremara provides vigorous performance and unsurpassed quality in all of
their plants. To do this, Floremara will employ the very same growing
techniques that have been perfected in Europe and have made Elatior Begonias
so popular in the EU market.
