Missoula flower shop promotes other local businesses during reopening - KPAX-TV
MISSOULA — Buckets of free flowers filled the Bitterroot Flower Shop’s parking lot just a month ago as they were forced to shut their doors and dispose of the fresh product they would no longer be allowed to sell. The Missoula business reopened on Monday, and just in the nick of time. “Not only are we reopening, but we’re reopening the week before Mother’s Day which is the busiest flower holiday of the year,” said owner Lindsay Irwin. Because their business will bounce back a little quicker than others, Irwin said it only makes sense to spread the love. “We’re a big shop, so we have to offer a large selection of flowers and we get them from many different places, but this year we’ve decided that we’re going all local.” Almost every flower used in an arrangement purchased from the shop will come from a Missoula farm.

'Field Notes:' All About The Bitterroot, Montana's State Flower
Salish elders recall their family's journeys from the reservation in Arlee down to the Missoula Valley in the early 20th century, a time and place where bitterroots used to bloom generously. The trip from Arlee to Missoula by horse-drawn wagon took a full day, and travellers camped in teepees in the Missoula Valley near to what is now ShopKo. The prime season for harvesting only lasted about two weeks, so there was a large boom of hundreds of people who harvested roots growing on the valley floor and all the way up Mount Sentinel every spring, until expanded development in the Missoula Valley destroyed the bitterroots and their habitat. The species name rediviva translates to "brought back to life" in Latin. In fact, bitterroots can live for more than a year without water. For this reason, the bitterroot has also been called the "resurrection flower." An old Salish story tells how the bitterroot came to be. One winter, there was no game to eat toward the end of the season, so an old grandmother cried for her starving people. The woman went up on a hill to ask the creator for mercy and protection, grieving over the plight of her people. Her tears ran down her silver hair and the sun turned her tears into the bitterroot flower, whose nutritious root provided the starving people with food. So when the bitterroots burst into bloom every spring, we can admire the silvery sheen of the puddles, and remember the old grandmother's hair and her prayer for her people.

Where are all the flowers grown?
Early on a Tuesday morning in mid-August, in one of the worst fire seasons in years, the forests surrounding Missoula continue to burn, leaving a campfire smell on the wind and producing billows of smoke that dull the skies to apocalyptic gray. But at a small residential garage in Missoula, the Westside Flower Market is in full swing, providing a fragrant refuge from the bad air and a sense that there’s still color and life on earth.Lush raspberry canes flank the entrance where florists enter each week to peruse flowers, ornamental grasses and foliage. Buckets of Ruby Silk and Green Tails Amaranthus mimic the cascade of weeping willows. There's a congregation of bright cosmos and dahlias—multiple varieties in shades of pink, yellow and orange. There's Mountain Ash, its orange berries still ripening on the boughs, and, on a nearby table, a bundle of feathery white scabiosa."That's my mom's favorite, because it reminds her of a Harry Potter spell," says Carly Jenkins, grinning and flinging her arm into the air like a magician.

Just in time for summer: Wildflower bloom on Rogers Pass draws crowds
Rocky Mountain flower show has hit full bloom. Rogers Pass, just 90 minutes east of Missoula but worlds away botanically, makes a remarkable field trip for flower lovers and those they wish to convert.“I was up there this weekend and it was packed,” Lincoln Ranger District natural resource specialist Josh Lattin said Monday. “It should be good for maybe a week or so. They’re usually done pretty quick, but if we keep getting these cells of moisture they may last a little longer.”The 30-minute walk from the high point on Montana Highway 200 to the ridgeline transforms from thick forest colored by red Indian paintbrush, yellow glacier lilies and lavender lupine stalks. Beargrass blooms the size of softballs jostled between tree trunks.Within 10 minutes, the trail breaks into an open, rocky meadow littered with yellow blanketflowers with their red centers, pale pink prairie smoke and cushion Townsend daisys with their purple petals and yellow centers. Ten minutes more, and all vegetation drops below shoelace level. At the rocky ridgeline, tiny blue forget-me-nots and Yellowstone graba cushioned the ground while occasional monster pale evening primrose defied the wind with flowers big as silver dollars.“There are lots of wide-open meadow...

Then and Now: Spokane Flower Growers Association
In 2005, Hamacher purchased Glacier Mountain. Roses and More is the largest flower distributor in the region. Roses and More also has branches in Missoula and Boise. Flower distribution once done by train is now done by one of the largest networks of trucks and couriers in the Northwest. “I have always said we are a trucking company that delivers flowers,” Hamacher told The Spokesman-Review last year. His company, now based in Spokane Valley, distributes everywhere from the Cascade Mountains to the Dakotas and from the Canadian border to Utah. In 2016, he added a large Montana courier fleet. “We go into every single town in Montana,” he said. (The Spokesman-Review)
