12347583_10154362628909068_5088924758260848178_nSyndicate Sales is one of four national sponsors for American Flowers Week and I’m so pleased that this venerable floral industry hardgoods company sees the value in promoting USA-made products.

Based in Kokomo, Indiana, Syndicate serves the professional florist and wholesale customers through its online store, beautiful catalogs and through other distributors across the country.

I’ve loved collaborating with Syndicate’s design and marketing team on numerous projects, including the Field to Vase Dinner Tours where featured floral designers pair Syndicate’s USA-made vases with local and seasonal American-grown flowers.

Syndicate has also supplied USA-made vases for a workshop I taught at the Garden Writers Association’s annual symposium in Pasadena last September and for my lecture and demonstration at St. Louis Art Museum’s Art in Bloom earlier this year.

It’s nice to say, “I care about the origins of the products I use,” especially when those products contain local and domestic flowers. And I’ve made it a practice to always check for the USA flag icon when I choose a vase from Syndicate Sales.

For American Flowers Week we’ve invited flower farmers and florists around the country to submit their arrangements and red-white-and-blue flowers to our “50 States of American Grown Flowers” gallery. Look to the left column of this site and you’ll see the inspiring lineup of beautiful American-grown blooms.

On Monday, July 4th, we’re drawing winners from the submissions — and three lucky members of the Slow Flowers Community will receive $100-shopping-sprees from Syndicate Sales.
