ABC-7 visited Calhoun Flower Farm in La Mesa, New Mexico.
Outside the farm, the Irises were in full blooms, with numerous varieties on display. Pinks, purples, oranges, whites, yellows, and different color combinations were scattered around the field, and more flowers are on the way! At the farm, they have 40-50 different species of flowers with even more color combinations of those species. Each one blooms at different times of the year.
The farm manager of the farm shared that the peak blooming season is just a few weeks away, and she is looking forward to getting her flowers out into the market.

Her flowers are available for wholesale, retail, and even for at-home flower delivery services.
