ABC features American Grown Flowers for America’s Moms 

Anchor David Muir Meets with Florists, Farmers Who Deliver Homegrown Blooms 
The week before Mother’s Day, the year’s largest flower-buying holiday, ABC World News Tonight Anchor David Muir met with some florists who are committed to designing with blossoms that are grown right here in America. 

Muir talked to designers who are creating bouquets with exclusively American Grown Flowers as well as the farmers who grow the blooms. 

In February, a delegation of American flower and foliage farmers traveled to Washington, D.C., to advocate for the reinstatement of the USDA’s Annual Floriculture Report.

On May 22, the Senate Ag Appropriations Sub-Committee’s mark-up was published and includes language requested by Sen. Dianne Feinstein and Sen. Lisa Murkowski directing $500,000 to USDA’s National Agriculture Statistics Service (NASS) budget to reinstate the Annual Floriculture Report.
