About Us

Welcome to California Classics

Exotic Plant Company

Barry Kuypers, owner of California Classics, moved his family from Vancouver, British Columbia to Kelowna in 2004. In the spring of 2005 he opened the "Kelowna Flower Farm" for business. In 2012 Barry Kuypers transformed his greenhouses from flowers to exotic trees and plants and renamed the company "California Classics" to service the Okanagan Valley.


Barry Kuypers is well known for the Mandeville Garden Centre, his family's reputable 60-year old business in Vancouver, B.C. which he owned and operated until 1999.


As an impassioned family-owned business, California Classics are committed to providing their customers with exceptional quality, service and selection. 

For customers who have bought an exotic plant from us... OR somewhere else, it will need extra care to remain healthy over the winter. By bringing your exotic back to our greenhouses for the winter, we ensure that your plant has a long, healthy life.


Please call us for details and pricing.

I invite you to visit us...

Come out to our greenhouses and browse through our exotic trees and plants. Unlike most garden centres, our stock is made of top quality exotics. If we don't  have it in stock we do our best to source it for you. We love our plants and we offer friendly, helpful assistance and advice. We want you to find the plant that is right for your home environment so it flourishes and thrives.
