Ecuador is actually the world’s third largest cut flower exporter in the world, and nearly three-fourths of the blooms shipped are roses. Amazing when you consider the country encompasses only about 1% of the earth’s surface. The appearance of roses from Ecuador are mainly due to climate and geography, as the flowers are grown at around 2,000 meters above sea level on the plains of the Ecuadorian Andes. The nation’s position on the equator, which means it receives about 12 hours of sunlight a day, is another reason why Ecuadorian roses thrive. With bright colors and fragrant scents, the rose industry provides jobs for thousands of local Ecuadorians and spreads beauty and love throughout the world. There are currently 400 varieties of roses cultivated in Ecuador. There are 629 flower farms in the country. Most grow roses. Flower production accounted for 10 percent of the country’s agricultural GDP in 2013, with roses comprising 74 percent of the floriculture sector.
