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.

Growers of Florida wildflowers have taken a major step toward increasing the supply of native Florida seed available for beautification, native habitat restoration projects, and consumer use. The Wildflower Seed and Plant growers Association, Inc. began operation in the spring of 2003.

The officers of the association are Mr J.R. Newbold III, President, Mr Rick Johnston, Executive Vice President, and Mr Terry Zinn, Treasurer.

Currently, wildflower production in Florida falls far short of demand. This results in seeds for native restoration, large scale Florida highway beautification projects totaling thousands of pounds annually, being purchased from major seed producing states such as Texas.

A group of Florida wildflower producers, working in conjunction with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, and the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, and the Florida Wildflower Foundation is developing strategies to increase planted wildflower, and native plant acreage thereby increasing seed production to better meet the demand for native species.
