About the Coop

Our Mission


To produce and supply high-quality wildflower seed and plant material for landscape professionals and the consumer with a commitment to quality and service.

Wildflower production in Florida falls well short of demand. This results in seeds for native restoration and large-scale highway beautification projects being purchased from states such as Texas.

With the creation of the Wildflower Seed and Plant Growers Association in 2003, Florida wildflower growers took a major step toward increasing the supply of native Florida seed available for beautification, native habitat restoration projects and consumer use.

The association was the vision of a group of Florida wildflower producers working in conjunction with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services,  University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, and Florida Wildflower Foundation. Since its founding, it has better met demand for native species through strategies that have increased seed and plant production.

Association officers are President J.R. Newbold III, Executive Vice President Terry Zinn, Treasurer Janie Harris and Secretary Brian Crews.
