In this, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019 photo, workers unload boxes of flowers from a Boeing 747 cargo jet after arriving from Colombia, at Miami International Airport in Miami.

The delicate cargo flies in on 95 to 100 daily flights, mostly from Colombia and Ecuador, compared with a dozen or so daily flights the rest of the year, according to Border Protection.
