About K. van Bourgondien
Offering the Finest Dutch Bulbs and Perennials Since 1845
It has been an amazing journey from our humble beginnings back in 1845 to our current status, over 175 years later, as one of the leading wholesale distributors of Dutch bulbs and perennials.
The K. van Bourgondien company started in Holland as a grower of tulips and other flower bulbs that were sold to merchants and horticulture professionals throughout the region. The company earned a reputation for offering healthy, dependable, top-quality bulbs at fair prices. Not only that, but K. van Bourgondien began to be recognized as the European market's premier seller of the best new bulb varieties.
Coming to America
Our introduction to the American market came early in the 20th century, after Karl C. van Bourgondien observed the great demand for Dutch bulbs in the United States. His idea for a mail-order company based in the U.S. propelled the family business into international renown for its outstanding variety, exceptional quality and reliable performance.
Today, K. van Bourgondien is still acknowledged as one of the world's top purveyors of fine Dutch bulbs and perennials. We maintain a strong presence in Holland, including a full-time staff of buyers and other flower experts that visits growers and hybridizers, year in and year out, to inspect products at every stage of their development. Once they are completely satisfied with the quality, our pros negotiate the very best prices possible for savings that are passed along to you.
K. van Bourgondien serves thousands of weekend gardeners, florists, gardening pros and landscape designers every year. We are grateful that many customers have been with us for decades, following in the footsteps of their parents and grandparents—generational loyalty that both humbles and inspires us. Our pledge to you is to keep providing top-quality bulbs and perennials at low prices—with even greater discounts on bulk quantities—all offered with outstanding customer service and our No-Risk Guarantee!
