Sally Cunningham: The first best flowers - Buffalo News
I’m betting you and the pollinators will love them all.
Here is a sampling to see now, take home, harden off, and plant in May.
• Amsonia tabernaemontana (Bluestar) ‘Storm Cloud’: This cultivar of a native plant has dark stems and masses of star-shaped periwinkle blue flowers in spring. Another Amsonia (A. hubrechtii) turns bright gold in fall. Average size: 20 by 24 inches.

• Phlox subulata (Creeping Phlox, Moss Phlox) ‘Emerald Blue’ (plus many cultivars in many colors): Typically people ask for this in garden centers after spotting it in a front yard, but they are disappointed to find that it has finished flowering. Get it as soon as you see it, so you will have a lovely spread next year. In the yard, on the edge of a wall or border, it makes a sea of color very early, and a pleasant green groundcover all summer; about 4 inches tall, mats spreading to 2 feet.
• Lysimachia atropurpurea (Burgundy Gooseneck Loosestrife) ‘Beaujolais’: I first spotted this one at Lavocat’s Garden Center and stopped in my tracks. It is stunning, with silvery-green wavy edged leaves and burgundy flowers. I must have it. Its size: 20 by 18 inches. It is the same genus as old-fashioned Gooseneck Loosestrife, but all reports say it will not spread like the relative, and the common name “loosestrife” should not confuse people. It’s no relation to the invasive loosestrife correctly called Lythrum.
• Baptisia (False Indigo): This valuable genus is a legume, with flowers that please many pollinators, presented in a compact, upright perennial with season-long pretty foliage. Older Baptisias offered lovely blue/indigo blossoms. New cultivars have emerged in recent years leading to the Decadence® Deluxe series (Proven Winners) that includes ‘Pink Truffles, ‘Pink Lemonade’, ‘Blueberry Sundae’, ‘Vanilla Cream’, ‘Dutch Chocolate’ and ‘Cherries Jubilee.’ (Does anyone feel hungry?)

• Pansies: These are technically perennials, and efforts in the last decades pursued their winter hardiness, producing cold and snow-tolerant ones such as ‘Icicle’ and ‘Snow Angel’ among others. Whether or not they perennialize, they like the cool weather of spring and fall, so get them going now.

Garden centers don’t all have the plant departments filled out yet. They have to be careful, as do we, about putting plants outside too soon. April weather... Feb 28, 2019
A treasure in Kalispell, Bibler Gardens a geologist's wonderland and legacy - Great Falls Tribune
Persian rugs, some historic French furniture, animal mounts, Inuit carvings and prints and 20th century Montana artists.
The gardens, though, steal the show.
Seven gardeners work for eight months a year to "paint" with flowers in a way that would do Bibler proud.
Every fall they plant 10,000 to 14,000 bulbs, with 300,000 already in the ever-changing garden.
By mid-May, seas of tulips emerge. Daffodils, hyacinths, alyssum, aubretia and candy tuft add to the scene. Apple, plum, pear and other flowering trees are in bloom.
Perennials are emerging and getting ready to take over where the tulips leave off. Gardeners will plant another 30,000 annuals during the month of June. Jun 14, 2018
'Field Notes:' All About The Bitterroot, Montana's State Flower
Field Notes:' All About The Bitterroot, Montana's State Flower (June 3 and 8, 2018) Enter the high country of Montana in late May or early June and you may see a striking pale pink flower. Few plants can rival the lovely bloom of the bitterroot, a low-growing perennial herb with a blossom that ranges from deep rose to almost white. The bitterroot grows on the dry slopes of the Rockies, ranging from southern British Columbia and Alberta to the high-altitude deserts of New Mexico and Arizona. Dormant for nearly ten months of the year, the bitterroot flowers in May or June and blooms only briefly. The plant uses stored energy from nighttime moisture to open its flowers in the morning. The flowers close during the sunny afternoons and evenings to preserve their energy. Each ... Apr 6, 2018

Where are all the flowers grown?
The Westside Flower Market is a sign that things are changing for Montanans in the flower business. In fact, the flower industry is changing nationwide. Currently, 80 percent of flowers bought in the United States are sourced from foreign markets. Colombia produces about 78 percent of those, Ecuador contributes 15 percent, and the rest come from China, Europe and Africa. Over the past five years, many American flower growers and sellers have conspired to change those numbers in an effort known as the "slow flower" movement, the principles of which mimic the already thriving local food movement that's been growing in popularity for more than a decade.Debra Prinzing, a Seattle journalist, master gardener and host of the Slow Flowers podcast, writes about the movement's three-pronged philosophy:First, as a flower arranger, she works primarily with flowers that are in season. "So, come December and January," she writes, "my commitment to sourcing locally-grown floral materials sends me to the conifer boughs, colored twigs and berry-producing evergreens—and the occasional greenhouse-grown rose, lily or tulip, just to satisfy my hunger for a bloom."Second, it's artisanal by nature, the kind of know-your-farmer ideal that excludes mass-market operations and big-industry brokers.Finally, the slow flower movement is about taking the time to enjoy beauty in a manner conjured by the phrase "stop and smell the roses." It's about approaching flowers with care and deliberateness."When I say the phrase 'slow flowers,'" Prinzing writes, "there are those who immediately understand it to mean: I have made a conscious choice."The Westside Flower Market is becoming a space where local florists and flower growers can make conscious choices and, at the same time, build relationships and share knowledge. Consumers too, can play a role in the slow flower movement."Maybe Valentine's Day doesn't mean a dozen pink roses," Jenkins says. "Maybe it can mean something different.""It might be unromantic to call a flower a commodity or a manufactured product, but flowers are both," writes journalist Amy Stewart in her new book, Flower Confidential. "They are ephemeral, emotional and impractical, but we Americans buy about four billion of them a year. We buy more flowers than we do Big Macs. Flowers are big business. It just happens to be a gorgeous, bewitching, bewildering business."Flowers that are shipped to the U.S. from overseas are cut long before they blossom. They end up blooming inside metal containers around the time they land at the airport, usually in Miami.And most flowers are shipped to the U.S. from overseas, in large part because of a U.S. government policy. In 1991, two decades after then-President Richard Nixon declared "war on drugs," the U.S. entered into the Andean Trade Preference ...
