Green Point Nurseries offers a complete selection of Hawaii tropical flowers and foliage, which are harvested daily and sent to professional florists all over the world.
The company’s specialty is anthuriums, which are tested by public and private hybridizers to conduct research and innovate. Currently, the company is helping the University of Hawaii research a scented pink anthurium called Princess Aiko, still years away from commercial availability. Over the years, Green Point has strived to improve its products and services by developing new methods in cultivation and packaging.
“What makes our product unique is the exceptional quality,” says Eric Tanouye, the company’s vice president and general manager. Green Point has received a number of awards for its anthuriums, including a blue ribbon for its Lavender Lady, a red ribbon for Tropical Fire and a red ribbon to Kalapana as an outstanding anthurium variety. The company also has been recognized for excellence, receiving such awards as the 1998 U.S. Senate Productivity Award, Exporter of the Year for 1992 by the state of Hawaii, Outstanding Cooperator of the Year by the Puna Conservation District and the Outstanding Agricultural Operation award by the 2004 Ag Conference.
Green Point Nurseries’ products can be found at florist shops, hospitality and special events throughout Hawaii and the U.S. mainland. Products are now available through the company’s web site and can be ordered by phone, (808) 959-3535.
