Fiesta Paper Flowers

When I started importing from Mexico back in 1979, I promised myself that I would never import things I used to get as a kid when taken to Tijuana by my grandparents - that included photographs on donkeys painted to look like zebras, leather fringed vests, marionettes & big paper flowers. But over the years, we have been doing business with more and more caterers, party shops & event planners who need big paper flowers.

We now have our first load of bright, solid colored paper flowers. They arrive closed with the wire stem holding the flower closed. You unfurl the petals when you want to use the flower.

Assorted colors.

Flowers are a major element of the Day of the Dead celebration. We are happy to announce that we are working with the Hudson Valley Seed Library to bring these marvelous seeds to our Day of the Dead loving customers. When I saw their spectacular packaging featuring papel picado & history of the holiday inside the unusual square packaging, I knew this would be enjoyed by teachers & ofrenda makers who find it almost impossible to find real cempasuchil in October.

We will be learning from you this first year, so please share with us your experience growing these seeds. It is possible that they be exactly the same flower as we are used to finding in Oaxaca, Puebla or Michoacan markets but they will be closer than any other seeds available in the U.S.

These seeds can grow anywhere in the U.S. They take 70 days from planting to flowering so count back about 70 days from when you want them in order to know when to plant. Make sure it's after the last frost. You can also start them indoors and grow seedings for 6 weeks then replant. (Does it sound like I have a green thumb?)

The Marigolds (Cempasuchil) are a blend of French & African marigolds. The Mexican Sunflowers don't resemble any big yellow sunflower I've ever seen in the States - they are more like a wild zinnia field flowers that grow from yellow to deep orangey red. They would look beautiful on a DoD ofrenda. The Cock's Comb is going to surprise us all! But what the heck! Its size will vary depending on soil, region and many other conditions, and will come in assorted colors. I may put Miracle Grow on mine as I would be so happy to grow a cresta de gallo o mano de leon the size of a football as they do in Oaxaca. These will be velvety in deep saturated colors of red, orange and yellow. Beautiful for Day of the Dead.
