- The video describes the flowers cultivated, graded, packaged and distributed in Florida, including gladioli, pompons and lilies. There are slow motion shots of the flowers in bloom, and footage of the process of cultivating flowers, from preparing the soil to cutting the flowers after full growth. Then the film focuses on the Florida Flower Association’s flower research and their role in distributing the state’s flowers in refrigerated trucks, trains and planes. The end of the film shows how people use flowers in their homes and businesses and during events, such as weddings and fashion shows.
