Abstract

Despite higher energy and fuel costs in 2005, sales of floriculture crops managed a 1.5percent increase as the U.S. economy expanded at a healthy pace. All floriculture crop groups boosted sales, except cut flowers as competition from imports continues to rise. Even as the number of growers declined for the fourth year in a row, average floriculture sales per grower and per acre of total production area rose for the third consecutive year.

Keywords: Floriculture, nursery, greenhouse, horticulture, cut flowers, flowering plants, foliage plants, bedding and garden plants, annuals, perennials, ornamental crops, trees, shrubs.

Summary
Positive Growth for Floriculture Sales in 2005
Floriculture crop sales increased by a modest 1.5 percent to $5.4 billion in 2005. All floriculture crop groups expanded in sales, except cut flowers. Grower sales of cut flowers declined for the third year in a row, as cut flower imports grew for the third consecutive year. And as imports of other floriculture crops continued their upward trend, domestic consumption reached $6.2 billion in 2005. This translates to an average $56 of floriculture crops sold at wholesale to each U.S. household. The share of imports in floriculture consumption remains at 14.1 percent, which is lower than the 16.2 percent a decade ago. The fastest growing crop group was potted foliage plants for indoor or patio use, increasing over 5 percent in 2005 and has averaged 5 percent since 2003. Herbaceous perennial plants and propagative material also grew more than 5 percent on average in the past 3 years. Quantity sold of domestic-grown floriculture crops was higher for bedding and garden plants in 2005, but lower for potted flowering plants and cut flowers. Unit prices increased 2 percent for potted flowering plants, 1.3 percent for herbaceous perennials, and less than 1 percent for annual bedding plants. Prices of cut flowers fell 2 percent, and are only marginally higher than prices in 2000. The total number of U.S. floriculture crop growers (in the 36 surveyed States) declined for the third consecutive year. The number of large growers with annual floriculture sales of $100,000 or more were 4,412 in 2005, the fewest since the survey of 36 major States began in 1992. Sales per large grower exceeded $1.15 million on average in 2005, almost twice the revenue in 1992. California still leads the industry in floriculture sales with $1 billion, followed closely by Florida with $976 million in 2005. However, the number of growers in Florida was 907, more than California’s 820 in 2005. Average sales of large U.S. growers of floriculture crops expanded in 2005, including growers of cut flowers. The crop group with the highest average sales was bedding and garden plants at $859,614 per grower, followed closely by cut flower growers at $796,572. The average size of large operations in the Western and Southern States--$1.6 and $1.4 million in 2005 sales, respectively—are twice those in the Midwest and Northeast. All large floriculture operations in the 36 surveyed States hired more than 127,000 workers in 2005, down 2.5 percent from 130,320 in 2004. Average sales per hired worker approached $45,000 for large growers in 2005, up more than $10,000 since 1999.

Floriculture Production Area Edge Down 1 Percent
As the production area of small floriculture growers continues to shrink, the production area of large growers continues to expand. The greenhouse-covered area of large floriculture operations increased to 11,119 acres in 2005 from 10,990 acres in 2004. Since their open-field production area also rose, the total growing area of larger growers in the 36 surveyed States reached a record 53,344 acres in 2005. Of total area, 21 percent was under greenhouse cover and 14 percent was under shade or temporary cover. Average sales per acre of large growers were $95,300 in 2005, and $31,000 for small growers. The average production area of

large growers was more than 12 acres in 2005, another record. Of this area, 4.3 acres were covered and 7.8 acres were open-field on average. Large growers in Florida had the largest floriculture area of the 36 States with 15,900 acres in 2005, of which 1,487 acres were under permanent greenhouses. California had 10,500 acres in production, of which 2,138 acres were under greenhouses. Average sales per acre were highest in Maryland, however, at more than $325,700 in 2005. The next highest were large growers in Colorado with $307,000 per acre on average. Despite average sales that are half those in the West and South, large floriculture operations in the Northeast States had the highest average sales per acre of the four U.S. regions at $108,000, followed by Midwest States at $105,776 per acre. Higher sales per acre in the Northeast and the Midwest are attributed to the larger share of production area under greenhouses—27 and 30 percent, respectively—compared to 17 and 20 percent in the South and West.

Cut Flowers
Fresh cut flower sales dropped 4 percent to $396.7 million in 2005, the lowest level since 1986. Except for gerbera daisies, lilies, tulips, and carnations, all other major cut flowers experienced lower sales. Nevertheless, sales of leatherleaf ferns were up in 2005. Among the major cut flowers still grown in the U.S., roses remain the highest earners with an average $660,271 of sales per large grower. The second highest earners are lilies at $541,387 sales per grower. Gerbera daisies come in third with $529,738 sales per grower on average in 2005. While most major cut flowers grown in the U.S. have suffered declining sales since 1992 (start of survey of 36 States), average annual sales of cut flower growers have been rising steadily. From $492,000 per grower in 1992, average cut flower sales reached close to $797,000 in 2005. As cheaper imports have discouraged domestic cut flower production over the past 2 decades, the number of U.S. growers has fallen. Nevertheless, these fewer growers focused their production on high-value cut flowers, and produced less where import competition is strongest. As a result, despite declining total annual sales, cut flower sales per grower have continued their upward trend. California leads the country with 73 percent of total cut flower sales in 2005. The State of Washington comes in a far second with 5 percent and then Hawaii and Florida with 4 percent each. Almost two-thirds of the more than $1 billion in domestic sales of cut flowers were from imports in 2005, the highest share on record. The U.S. imported more than $709 million of cut flowers in 2005, another record amount. About $9.75 on average were spent by each U.S. household for cut flowers in 2005, down from $9.92 in 2004 and $10.20 in 1997. Of imported cut flowers, roses were by far the largest in value at $274.7 million in 2005, or nearly 40 percent of total cut flower imports. The most expensive imports are cut anthuriums and cut orchids at an average 84 cents per stem in 2005. Almost 88 percent of U.S. consumption of fresh cut roses were imported in 2005, the highest level ever. Similarly, import shares were high for carnations at 95 percent, chrysanthemums at 76 percent, alstroemeria at 95 percent, and orchids at 53 percent of consumption. Consequently, U.S. growers reduced their production of most cut

flower varieties except orchids, gerbera daisies, irises, lilies, and tulips. These highvalue flowers have been U.S. growers’ answer to fierce competition from imports.

Potted Flowering and Foliage Plants
Sales of flowering plants in pots climbed 1 percent in 2005 to almost $809 million. Potted foliage plants expanded 7 percent in sales to $652.1 million, but foliage hanging baskets dropped 10 percent in sales to $68.9 million. Potted flowering plant sales’ gains in 2005 are attributed largely to orchids, which closed in on $144 million in sales, up from $129 million in 2004. Orchids are the fastest-growing potted flowering plant, more than tripling sales of $47 million a decade ago. While poinsettias remain the biggest seller at $242.3 million in 2005, sales are down 2 percent from 2004 and fell farther below their peak of $255.3 million in 2001. Imports of poinsettias, largely shipped from Canada, were more than $6 million in 2005, but are down from $10.4 million in 2002. Potted orchids are the most expensive major potted flowering plant at $8 per pot on average (wholesale value) in 2005. Poinsettia prices are about half at $4.10 per pot (all sizes). Similarly priced potted flowering plants are Easter lilies at $4.24 and florist azaleas at $4.14 per pot in 2005. Prices of all major potted flowering plants averaged a record $3.66 per pot in 2005, up 2 percent from $3.60 in 2004. Again, California leads in sales of potted flowering plants with $199.3 million in 2005. Florida’s sales of $94.6 million amount to less than half of California’s. California grows the most poinsettias and orchids, but Florida is a fast-growing source of potted orchids. Average sales per grower are highest for orchids at $663,447 in 2005. For all potted flowering plants, average sales were $384,660 per large grower, up 6.5 percent from $360,927 in 2004. Average sales of poinsettias were $160,467 per grower, up 3 percent from 2004, and the next highest after orchids. Similar sales per grower were recorded for florist chrysanthemums, which were up 7 percent from 2004. Nevertheless, average sales per grower for potted foliage plants were $706,507 in 2005, up sharply by 13 percent. All these sales are record amounts, attesting to the strong domestic market for potted flowering and foliage plants. Although competition from imports is rising for orchids and other flowering plants, the share of imports in consumption remains at a low 3 percent compared to cut flowers’ 66 percent. Potted foliage plants for indoor or patio use have the third largest sales among floriculture crops at $721 million, coming after bedding annuals and potted flowering plants. Nearly 70 percent of sales of U.S. foliage plants are earned by Florida growers, with California earning a distant 15 percent. Most foliage plants are marketed in metropolitan areas and face minimal competition from imports except fake plastic plants.

Bedding and Garden Plants and Propagative Material
Although sales of bedding/garden annual and perennial plants are up again in 2005, growth is much slower than in 2004, particularly herbaceous perennials. Sales per grower of annuals were $626,619 on average in 2005, up 7 percent from 2004. For perennials, sales per grower of $265,581 were up by a moderate 3 percent. The

average price of annuals was $2.66 in 2005, and $2.46 for perennials (in all container types). Average sales of annuals were $17.15 per U.S. household in 2005, while sales of herbaceous perennials were $6.38, for a total of $23.53 per U.S. household (at wholesale value). While California boasts the largest sales of bedding and garden annuals and perennials, Michigan, Florida, and Texas also sell sizable amounts. Southern States have close to $1 billion in total sales of bedding and garden plants in 2005, a significant gain of 9 percent from 2004. In fact, bedding/garden sales in the other 3 regions—the Midwest, the West, and the Northeast—were all down in 2005 as sales of annuals fell. Sales of propagative material or unfinished plants are now larger than sales of cut flowers. Three-quarters of total propagative sales are from bedding and garden annual and perennial material. Average sales of propagative material for annuals were $885,669 per grower in 2005, up 8 percent from 2004. More impressive is the 24-percent growth of propagatives for perennials to $881,313 on average per grower. Florida leads Michigan and California in production of propagative material. These 3 States produce 56 percent of total U.S. propagative material in 2005. Market competition comes from imports of unrooted cuttings and slips of plants, which amounted to $60.1 million in 2005, or 12 percent of total U.S. propagative sales.

Compilation of Sales and Trade Data
The statistics in Floriculture Crops are collected from annual surveys of all known growers of floriculture crops in 36 major States. The survey by the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) covers grower sales at wholesale by crop or product type and by State. Statistics for each crop include the number of producers, quantity of units sold, the percent of sales at wholesale, the wholesale price, and the value of sales. Only growers with at least $100,000 in gross value of floriculture sales are asked to provide detailed crop sales statistics. Selected crop data for Hawaii are also reported. Additional crop sales statistics are collected for various plant container sizes or types (e.g., flats, pots less than 5 inches tall, pots 5 inches or taller, 1-gallon pots or larger, and hanging baskets). Annuals are also distinguished from perennials and finished plants from propagative material. Growers are asked to provide data about the area used for crop production i.e., the size of growing area, the type of protective cover, and the area under cover. The number of hired workers on the payroll on any one day of the year is also reported. Excluded workers are those employed only for the retail operation, landscapers, and nonpaid family members. Data for States with a small number of operations are not reported to avoid disclosing individual business information, but their statistics are aggregated under “Undisclosed.” Data from Nursery Crops, based on the Nursery Production Survey of 17 States by NASS in 2000 and 2003, are available in the 2005 Yearbook. Surveys of nursery crops are conducted every 2 years by NASS. Sales estimates for nursery crops in all 50 States are included under “nursery and other greenhouse crops”, which cover all non-floriculture crops such as greenhouse vegetables, vegetable transplants, and ornamental grasses. ERS and NASS collaborate in estimating annual cash receipts of greenhouse and nursery crops in all 50 States with assistance from NASS State offices. Sales estimates for “nursery and other greenhouse crops” are computed as the difference between greenhouse/nursery cash receipts from all 50 States and floriculture sales from 36 States. Thus, the difference includes floriculture sales by growers located in the 14 smaller States that are excluded from the annual Floriculture Crops survey by NASS. (These 14 States have no floriculture sales in Table A-5 of the Yearbook.) Most of these States are sparsely populated or not conducive to floriculture production, and local growers generally have small operations whose collective sales are comparatively less than operations in the 36 larger States. U.S. trade—The source of aggregate import and export data for floriculture and nursery crops is the Foreign Agricultural Trade of the United States (FATUS), and more detailed trade data can be accessed on the internet at fas.usda.gov/ustrade. The U.S. Census Bureau compiles the trade data from U.S. Customs Service records. Imports are reported as customs value, defined as the price actually paid or payable for merchandise at the first port of arrival in the United States. Customs value excludes U.S. import duties, freight, insurance, and other charges incurred in exporting the merchandise to the United States. U.S. export values are “free alongside ship” (f.a.s.), representing the transaction price, including inland freight, insurance, and other charges incurred in placing the
1 Floriculture and Nursery Crops Yearbook/FLO-2006/June 2006

merchandise alongside the carrier at the U.S. port of exportation. F.a.s. values exclude the cost of loading the merchandise aboard the exporting carrier and also exclude freight, insurance, and any charges or transportation costs beyond the U.S. port of shipment. The floriculture and nursery trade data are divided into four groups, each classified by a 4-digit U.S. Harmonized System (HS) code--0601 (bulbs, tubers), 0602 (live plants, cuttings), 0603 (cut flowers, buds), and 0604 (foliage, branches, Christmas trees). Each group is further classified into 10-digit-coded products. FATUS imports are aggregated as “cut flowers” and “nursery stock,” while exports are aggregated as “nursery and greenhouse products.” All import and export values and quantities by HS codes and by countries are available starting in 1989, in monthly and annual frequency. The number of U.S. households by State and total U.S. resident population are obtained from the U.S. Census Bureau (census.gov). Population estimates in 1999 and 2001 through 2005 are projections based on the Census 2000 survey.

Supplemental Information
The 2002 Census of Agriculture provides the sales value and number of farms that produce nursery and greenhouse crops, floriculture crops, and cut Christmas trees in each of the 50 States. The 2002 Census also provides covered and open-field production areas by floriculture crop group and for greenhouse and nursery crops. The next survey of horticultural specialties will be in 2007. The sequence of tables in this Yearbook is unchanged from last year’s. All data are annual and represent calendar year estimates. The floriculture crop survey by NASS includes small growers with $10,000 to $100,000 in annual floriculture sales. However, only total crop sales, hired labor, and growing area statistics are collected from small growers since they collectively represent only 5 to 6 percent of total sales of larger producers with more than $100,000 in annual floriculture sales. Some sales statistics of large growers are not revealed in Floriculture Crops to avoid disclosure of individual operations. These statistics, however, are aggregated and recorded in “Undisclosed,” which is included in the total for the United States. As such, the sum of data in the four U.S. regions may not equal the U.S. total. The Yearbook is published online annually in June. Floriculture and Nursery Crops Outlook is also published online by ERS in September each year. The Outlook provides one-year-ahead forecasts of key floriculture sales and price statistics for the United States and the four U.S. regions—Northeast, Midwest, South, and West. An analysis of recent trends and the outlook for the industry is the focus of the report. This Yearbook and the Floriculture and Nursery Crops Outlook can be accessed, downloaded, and printed from the ERS website (www.ers.usda.gov/publications/flo). The ERS Floriculture Briefing Room provides a description of the U.S. ornamental crop industry as well as links to related informational publications, resources, and websites.

Definitions: Floriculture Crops
Bedding and garden plants: Annual or biennial finished flowering plants intended for seasonal outdoor use. Among the major annuals are begonias, geraniums, impatiens, marigolds, pansy/viola, and petunias. Also include vegetable-type ornamental plants, vegetable transplants for garden use, and herbaceous perennials, but exclude commercial vegetable plants. The plants are marketed as flats, pots, or hanging baskets. Cut foliage or greens: Cultivated ornamental stems, branches, or leaves grown as filler and foliage for cut flower arrangements and bouquets. Leatherleaf ferns, largely grown in Florida, are a major cut green. Cut flowers: Blossoms from flowering plants sold as stems, bunches, or arrangements; the flowers may be fresh, dried, or preserved. The major commercial varieties include standard carnations, roses, pompon chrysanthemums, gladioli, tulips, orchids, lilies, alstroemeria, delphinium and larkspur, gerbera daisies, iris, lisianthus, and snapdragons. Floriculture crops: Ornamental plants without woody stems, including annual and perennial bedding and garden plants, cut flowers, cut cultivated greens, potted flowering plants, indoor foliage plants, and unfinished propagative material. All other ornamental plants are classified as nursery crops. Foliage plants: Finished plants in pots or hanging baskets for indoor or patio use; they are classified as floriculture crops. Woody foliage plants intended for outdoor or landscape use are classified as nursery crops. Include ficus, ivy, cacti, ferns, palms, succulents, and indoor/patio shrubs, trees, and vines. Greenhouse crops: Crops grown under covered protection, including floral, foliage, and vegetable plants (largely tomatoes), unfinished plants, transplant seedlings, bulbs, turfgrass sod, aquatic and hydroponic plants, cultivated mushrooms, herbs, and seeds. Grower sales receipts from greenhouse crops include vegetable and fruit transplants for commercial production. Some nursery crops are grown in greenhouses before sale or transplant. Herbaceous perennials: Field and container-grown plants intended for outdoor use, including hardy/garden chrysanthemums, hosta, and other herbaceous perennials. Unlike annuals, perennials live and bloom for many years; they are dormant in the winter. Unfinished plants are excluded. Nursery crops: Finished ornamental plants and trees with woody stems, including broadleaf evergreens, coniferous evergreens, deciduous shade trees, deciduous flowering trees, deciduous shrubs and other ornamentals, fruit and nut plants intended for outdoor and landscape use, cut and live Christmas trees, and propagation material or lining-out stock. Also include ornamental vines, and turfgrass sod and other groundcovers. Crops are sold as “balled in burlap,” bare root, or are container-grown. Ornamental crops: Also known as environmental horticulture or green crops. All floriculture and nursery plants, shrubs, trees, and grasses for outdoor and indoor use are classified as ornamental. Their purpose is to beautify, decorate, or enhance the

environment, but are not cultivated for food. They include nursery stock and propagative material such as bulbs, cuttings and slips of plants, seedlings, and seed plants grown in greenhouses, but exclude plants intended for commercial food production such as vegetables. Potted flowering plants: Plants intended for indoor or patio use only, including plants grown from bulbs. Plants intended for landscape use are excluded. Include African violets, florist azaleas, florist chrysanthemums, Easter lilies, orchids, poinsettias, roses, and spring bulbs (tulips, hyacinths, daffodils/narcissus, other lilies). Other potted plants include anthurium, begonia, carnation, hibiscus, hydrangea, cyclamen, kalanchoe, gardenia. Production area: The gross physical space used for commercial propagation of floriculture plants, including aisles and walkways, in open ground (field) or covered by greenhouses made of glass, fiberglass, film plastic, or shade and temporary cover. Excludes non-ornamental crop growing areas, such as fruit and vegetable farms, sod, or tree and shrub nurseries. Propagative material: Includes cuttings, liners, plug seedlings, prefinished plants, or tissue cultured plantlets, and unfinished plants sold to other growers for further growing. Excludes seeds, bulbs, tubers, rhizomes, or corms grown for sale to bulb forcers and gardeners. Also excludes transplants for commercial production such as vegetable, strawberry, and tobacco plants. Wholesale value of sales: The value of all crops grown then sold by their growers on a gross wholesale basis before deductions for sales commissions, transportation costs, and other similar charges. The percentage of sales at wholesale is the crop portion not sold at retail or marketed directly to the final consumer. It is computed as the product of the average wholesale price and the total quantity of crops sold by the producer at wholesale.

p = Preliminary. 1/ Based on growers sales receipts in the preceding table. 2/ Domestic consumption equals supply minus exports. 3/ Production, imports, and exports are computed as the difference between corresponding values in greenhouse and nursery crops, including Christmas trees, and the value with respect to floriculture crops in the next page. Imports and exports include nursery stock (all of HS 0601), foliage and Chrustmas trees (all HS 0604), and trees, shrubs, and mushroom spawn (HS 0602). 4/ Includes sales by growers with annual floriculture sales between $10,000 and $100,000; growers are located in the 36 surveyed States. Imports and exports are the sum of cut flowers, flowering plants, and other floriculture crops (selected HS 0602 and all HS 0603). 5/ Domestic production is the residual after subtracting cut flower sales from total floriculture sales. Imports and exports include unrooted cuttings and slips of plants, flowering plants, and herbaceous perennials under HS 0602. 6/ Sales by growers with at least $100,000 in annual floriculture sales at wholesale. Imports and exports are under HS 0603. Sources: USDA, estimated by Economic Research Service; U.S. Bureau of Census, www.FAS.USDA.gov/ustrade.
