Plant Idaho Flowers
Nursery and greenhouse production is an important agricultural industry in Idaho making it easy to fill your garden and flower pots with locally grown plants. Look for the Idaho Preferred logo on hanging baskets, flower bowls, herb starts and plants grown in local greenhouses. Growers such as Ward’s Greenhouse, Moss Greenhouses, Olson’s Greenhouse and Warm Springs Greenhouse supply to local nurseries and garden centers in southwest Idaho including Zamzows, D&B Supply, Walmart and Albertsons while Rustic Gardens, Sunnyside Gardens, Town & Country Gardens and Blue Barn Produce & More sell direct to consumers at on-site locations and farmers markets.
Idaho nursery growers and local greenhouses also carry a wide range of annuals and perennials. You can give your garden a new look every growing season with annuals such as pansies, petunias, and marigolds. Their life cycles lasts one season which allows for fun experimentation. Perennials such as salvia, peonies, day lilies or rudbeckia can help brighten up your garden, and once established, most perennials are low-maintenance. Perennials thrive during spring and summer, die back in colder months and return to bloom in spring, giving your garden a consistent look each growing season.
