Novelties at Ball
Flowers are living organisms reserved and used to express happiness, gratitude, love, and excitement. In our R&D station located in Sesquile, Cundinamarca we do our breeding programs, testing, and research of fresh-cut flowers. We have various locations in Colombia to propagate cuttings and plant materials for the needs of our growers. Below we would like to highlight some of our very promising novelties.
