Tri State Foliage, Inc. was started in 1985. My goal was to supply quality tropical blooming and foliage plant material for the interiorscape market. Prior to starting Tri State Foliage, I had worked for Delhi Flower & Garden Center in Cincinnati, Ohio for 18 years and learned much about tropical foliage in my early years at Delhi. I started traveling to Florida to visit nurseries in 1968. Today I travel to Florida to visit and hand tag plant material every other month. My philosophy is that going to the nursery on a frequent basis enables us to consistently choose the “best quality” foliage available at that time. Size and quality vary and change from nursery to nursery on each trip to Florida. I have several growers that grow year round for us. I also hand tag larger plant material for our needs as well as special requests from customers. My goal is to supply the highest quality tropical plants on a year round basis. Over the last five years we have begun to offer a large variety of tropical blooming plant material for seasonal/spring market for the local garden centers and landscapers. This market has grown tremendously over the last several years.
