Plant & Flower Growing in the US

The Plant and Flower Growing industry has fared poorly in the five-year period. The influx of low-cost cut flower imports from Colombia and Ecuador has had a staggering negative effect on domestic farmers, decreasing industry revenue. In the coming years, industry revenue will decline, hampered by weak demand from florists and nurseries and by import competition. While the overall US economy is no longer in a recession, weak discretionary spending will continue to strain flower sales throughout the year.

Establishments in this industry grow nursery plants, such as trees and shrubs; flowering plants, such as foliage plants, cut flowers, flower seeds and ornamentals; and short rotation woody trees, such as Christmas trees and cottonwoods. These plants can either be grown under cover or in an open field.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
