Located just outside San Antonio, in late October, these flower fields come alive as Texans celebrate Dia De Los Muertos – Day of the Dead – featuring the ceremony's traditional marigolds. It's a reverent yet joyful experience that leaves your soul singing with bright memories.

Texas Specialty Cut Flowers is a haven for the Lone Star State's seasonal flowers, starting with blue cornflower and Texas wildflowers in the spring, black-eyed Susans in the summer and lilies and poppies to bring a burst of color to winter.

But it's the fall spectacular marigolds that have earned this farm an important role in the region's history. As residents honor friends and family who have passed on, marigolds decorate ofrendas (alters), and the petals strewn along pathways guide the spirits of loved ones back to their families.
