In September 2004, the Kuypers family moved from Burnaby to Kelowna and in the Spring of 2005 they were delighted to open The Kelowna Flower Farm for business.
Barry Kuypers is well known for Mandeville Garden Centre - his family's reputable 60-year old business, which he owned and operated until 1999.
While we still specialize in custom Hanging Flower Baskets and custom plant containers, Barry saw a need to provide more of the exotic plants and trees that were in huge demand here in the Okanagan Valley. With this change, came our new division, California Classics Exotic Plant Company.
As an impassioned, family-owned business, we are committed to making California Classics a place where you, the customer, can experience exceptional quality, service and selection.
Welcome to California Classics Exotic Plant Company. We pride ourselves on providing the local community with high quality plant products, which are handpicked for their longevity in our dynamic Okanagan climate, combined with exceptional, knowledgeable staff. We also offer specialized services, including Over Wintering for Exotics.
Over Wintering: Don't worry about your palm, citrus, agave or other exotic when winter rolls around. Come fall, we'll pick up your plant or tree and give it all the care and love it needs all winter long in our climate controlled greenhouses. Next spring, we'll bring it back! Easy.
