What Grows Where - Annual Specialty Cut Flowers (MN)
The growing of specialty cut flowers (cut flowers other than roses, chrysanthemums and carnations) has increased dramatically in the last five years. Flowers for commercial production are grown in almost every state, mainly in the field but also in the greenhouse. This has been the result of a tremendous pressure on the standard cut flowers by over seas producers and the trend to the wild flower or "Laura Ashley" look in flower design. Many of the specialty cut flowers are not particularly good travelers and the competition in some species from over seas producers has not been as great.
