ALEXANDRA FARMS

Alexandra Farms is a boutique grower specializing in nostalgic, romantic, fresh-cut garden roses. Our farm is located in the fertile savanna of Bogotá, high in the Andes Mountains of Colombia, where the warm days and cool nights are perfect for growing roses. Our garden roses are grafted, harvested, graded, bunched and packed by hand by rose-loving people.

 

Alexandra Farms was started by Jose R. Azout and is named after his daughter Alexandra Lydia Azout, who was born in 2004.

 

We are the largest of four licensed David Austin® growers in the world and the only one in Colombia. We are thrilled to offer 15 of his most romantic English garden roses all year in our David Austin Wedding & Event Rose Collection.

We grow an assortment of roses of many different colors, shapes and sizes bred in France, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands and Denmark. These 31 varieties make up our Deluxe Garden Rose Collection.

We have eight unique varieties of garden roses from Japan, which we call our Princess Japanese Garden Rose Collection.

Finally, we have the Wabara Garden Rose Collection, a branded Japanese line of three very special garden roses developed by breeder Keiji Kunieda.

 

We currently sell to select importers and wholesalers in the USA, Canada, France, England, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and more. To get our garden roses, simply ask your wholesaler to give us a call, send us an emailor contact us through our web form.
