[SUNDAY FEATURE] Everything’s coming up roses in Arizona

ROSESArizona is known for farming cattle, cotton and citrus, but there is actually another item that grows abundantly in this Southwestern desert. It has beautified our West Valley fields for decades. Arizona’s climate is the ideal place to grow crops like alfalfa, spinach and lettuce. Did You Know Arizona is one of two states that grows most of the rosebush crop in the U.S.?

“We’re the rosebush capital of the United States,” said Tyler Francis, a second-generation rosebush grower.

Michael Francis Roses is his family operated company which is among a handful of rose farms in the West Valley. The company has been around for 25 years. The 2,000 acre farm is located in Litchfield Park and El Mirage and sits next to Luke Air Force Base.
