Hours of Operation


Years ago, Franz wanted to do something to set them apart from other nurseries on State Street so he said to Vicki, his wife, “Hey lets get a hundred pink flamingos and stick them out in the lawn one day and really freak people out!” She found the suppliers of pink flamingos and ordered 100 of them. The minimum, however, was 120, but what she didn’t realize was that she was ordering pairs, so they actually got 240 of the darn things!

They got the flamingos, put them out on the lawn and got a great response from all of their customers; they really thought it was funny.

Franz Witte Nursery was started in 1971. They grow a wide variety of plants that are acclimated to the Idaho landscape. They have two locations, one off of State St and the other in McCall, ID.
