A beautiful sea of purple is what we are hoping for some day! Not this year but maybe next year! Phenomenal Lavender is our main variety with over 1100 plants. They are a deep purple & highly fragrant. Blooms should begin in June.
Zinnias rank right up there with our Lavender on the number of plants we plant each year on the farm. Such a hardy vibrant bloom! We have Giant Benary, Oklahoma & Queen Lime varieties!
Before I started flower farming, I was a huge flower nut! However, I never knew there were tall Snapdragons...I was only aware of the shorter varieties! These are striking...Rocket, Madame Butterfly, Potomac and Chantilly will grace the farm this year!
Succession planting is the key with sunflowers! I found that out last year. So much learning on the farm. This year we will succession plant mainly the Pro-Cut series of sunflowers but will have other options as well.
Beautiful cut flowers. So many varieties. Those on the farm in 2022 are: Celway Mix, Pampas Plume, Flamingo Feather and Texas Plume!
Such an elegant bloom that resembles a rose. Grown as an annual in Iowa. The farm will be growing Apricot, Light Pink and a reddish variation.
Flowers can be an addiction, especially Dahlias! So many varieties I would never be able to list them all! So beautiful! I will have plenty of Cafe Au Lait this year and it is one of the most popular varieties!
This is a great filler flower for bouquets. Such cute little circular blooms in purple, pink and white.
A taller cool weather loving annual. The farm will be growing a Larkspur Mix this year.
Such a pretty, delicate flower. SO many color and variety options with Cosmos! Come see our colors on the farm!
The China Aster is a great cut flower. Such a perfect bloom addition to the farm this year. We will be planting Tower Chamois and a Mix color variety.
I love this perennial. I love the flower and the greenery on it. I planted some seeds in March and I am hoping I can plant them out in a month or so. Governor and Band of Nobles are the varieties.
Another favorite of mine. A perennial. A more common name is Black Eyed Susan. The variety on the farm is Indian Summer. It blooms the majority of the summer. So stunning!
Statice is an excellent dried or fresh flower. Another flower that prefers the cooler weather. We will see how long it lasts!
Stock has long stems with variations of apricot, pink, purple, white and yellow flowers. The farm is growing pink and Apricot this year.
Bells of Ireland are a great green filler plant for your bouquets. We can't wait to grow them on the farm this year!
A variety of Queen Anne's Lace that you will see growing in the Iowa road sides. This version has flowers in dark purple, pink and white. Lasts very long in bouquets.
Our daughter's favorite flower. We are attempting to grow them this year! They are a cool loving flower, so they are planted outside already with a low tunnel over them.
These flowers are great cut flowers as well as a classic dried flower. We have a mix variety growing on the farm this year!
**These are the varieties that Jester Hill Farm will be growing this year. Please understand that they won't all be blooming at the same time, nor can we guarantee they will all thrive! **
