Alexandra Farms is a boutique grower specializing in nostalgic, romantic, fresh-cut garden roses and dahlias. 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 flowers. Our garden roses and dahlias are grafted, harvested, graded, bunched and packed by hand.


Alexandra Farms was started by Jose R. Azout in 2005 and is named after his daughter.


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


As the largest of four licensed David Austin® growers in the world and the only one in Colombia, we are thrilled to offer 16 of the most romantic English garden roses in our David Austin Wedding Rose Collection.

Eight unique varieties of garden roses that were bred for the Emperor of Japan make up our Princess Japanese Garden Rose Collection.

The Wabara Garden Rose Collection is a branded line of three very special Japanese garden roses developed by breeder Keiji Kunieda.

We grow 12 varieties of dahlias with desirable shapes and colors, and long vase life. Our varieties were developed by two breeders for the cut flower market. More varieties are in testing for future release.


We currently sell to select importers and wholesalers in the USA, Canada, 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.
