About Us: It all started in 1949 when 4 brothers, 3 family members and one hired hand came together to form Kitayama Brothers in 1949. Through hard work, experience and a desire to grow quality carnations, success was not far away.

Today, with 5 family members, a team of 99, and 2 million square feet of greenhouses, we produce Oriental and Asiatic Hybrid Lilies, Gerberas, Lisianthus, Snapdragons, Iris, Tulips, Stock, Calla Lilies and Gardenias. From the Greenhouse to the grade to our shipping area for custom packing, the flowers never leave water. Methods of growing have changed since 1949 but the commitment to outstanding flowers is only getting stronger. “Our Tradition is Growing”.
