Homestead, Fla. – Following the huge response to Blue Mystique, Silver Vase is making the popular blue orchid available in California through a strategic partnership with Westerlay Orchids.

“After nationwide success with our Blue Mystique launch, we are pleased to work with Westerlay Orchids to serve the California market,” said Silver Vase CEO Andrew Bartha. “An established grower known for quality, they are well positioned to produce and market Blue Mystique in this large floral market.”

Providing Blue Mystique in California is a natural extension of Westerlay’s business.

“At Westerlay Orchids we are always trying new ideas—from innovative growing practices to introducing new orchids to our customers,” said Nicole Woolley, Marketing Manager. “Working with Silver Vase is the perfect partnership because our core beliefs are the same—quality, quality, quality.”

Annually the partners will bring to market more than 6 million orchids total, collaborating with Dutch breeder Floricultura. Silver Vase will continue to service the rest of the West Coast and North America, working closely with Plainview Growers to meet consumers’ desire for beautiful, unique orchids.
