About the Project

“Growing Floret,” is a documentary series, created for Magnolia Network, that chronicles Floret, a world-renowned, family-run flower farm located in the Skagit River Valley of Washington State. 

In the first season, released in 2021, we follow Erin Benzakein, the founder of Floret Flower Farm, and her husband Chris, on their journey to bring more flowers into the world by expanding their flower farm. 

In season two, released in 2023, we follow Erin as she wrestles with the meaning of legacy while she works to save endangered roses, breeds never-before-seen varieties of zinnias, and creates a massive flower library, all while trying to run a business and be a good steward of the land. 

All seasons of "Growing Floret" are available to stream now on MaxDiscovery+, and the Magnolia Network App.
