Find out about the agricultural roots of the Silicon Valley while sending San Jose flowers.
Located at the at the southern end of the San Francisco Bay area, San Jose is the tenth largest city in the United States with a population of just over 1 million. The city was founded by the Spaniards in 1777 and was originally named in honor of St. Joseph as El Pueblo de San Jose de Guadalupe.
Like most southern California cities, San Jose is known for the beautiful beaches and incredible weather. In fact, San Jose enjoys 300 days of sunshine each year making this the perfect vacation destination.
For those looking for things to do outside of sunbathing, San Jose will not disappoint. The city has a flourishing entertainment district as well as plenty of museums and galleries to take in. Tourists can enjoy everything from casinos, to golfing, to vineyards. Those a little more adventurous may want to visit the Winchester Mystery House which according to legend is haunted by the souls of those who’ve lost their lives to the guns manufactured by the Winchester Company.
San Jose also boasts several gardens that nature enthusiasts will not want to miss. There is the San Jose Community Garden, The Chinese Cultural Garden, The Japanese Friendship Garden and the Municipal Rose Garden to name but a few of the places to find flowers in San Jose. The Municipal Rose Garden is one of the most popular, and is home to over 4000 rose bushes making this San Jose flower central. The rose garden is not only popular among tourists, it’s also a favorite of the locals with many San Jose florists and other residents visiting each year to take in the wonder of the blooms the local San Jose flower shops can only try to imitate. Even though San Jose flower shop owners get the majority of their roses from local San Jose flower farmers, the roses in the garden often make the flowers in San Jose flower shops look extremely pale by comparison. San Jose florists often recommended that wedding and other event planners take their clients to visit the rose garden to help them decide on the breed and color of the flowers they’d like for their events. This helps the clients as well as the florist as they can ensure that their designs are perfectly aligned with the vision of the client. Including hybrids, there are over 189 varieties of roses growing here. The garden blooms from April through November, with early May being the best time to visit as the roses are at their most beautiful during this period. With roses in bloom for 8 months of the year, you’ve got plenty of time to visit. The most beautiful flowers in San Jose can be found not at a flower shop or through a San Jose florist, but at the city’s very own Municipal Rose Garden.
