Just like fruit and vegetables, flowers are raised commercially on farms. These farms provide a colorful backdrop for "Flowers," which shows viewers how flowers such as roses, orchids, anthuriums and carnations are raised outdoors and in greenhouses. Viewers will visit a wholesale flower market to see where merchants go to buy flowers for their stores.
