Ethiopian Roses

Many of the Valentines Day roses presented in Europe are grown in Ethiopia. Over 100,000 roses are exported each day! And the custom of giving flowers is catching on domestically. Floriculture is one of Ethiopia’s fastest-growing industries, because the government makes it easy for flower companies to obtain land and startup loans. National Geographic has a video report on Ethiopian roses. Link

Many Roses imported here State side are also sent from Ecuador. Look for that when you go to purchase your roses from stores. I've been, and the plantations are amazing.
