A new online survey, released Wednesday by Harris Interactive on behalf of Lebanon Seaboard Corporation, sheds light on how generational differences impact flower preferences.
According to the survey, Americans 45 and older prefer to grow roses while younger generations (18 to 44 year-olds) favor growing tulips. Additionally, the survey found that Americans ages 35 and older are more likely to grow flowers, than their younger counterparts (18-34 year-olds).

“In honor of National Garden Month this April, now is an ideal time for people of all generations to give flower growing a try. Experts suggest that nurturing plants is not only good for the planet, but good for us too – it improves attitudes towards health and nutrition, aids in children’s performance at school and enhances community spirit,” said Bill Kelso, executive director sales & marketing, Lebanon Seaboard Corporation, consumer products division.
“By following a few easy steps, including using the right fertilizer, all levels of gardeners can grow beautiful flowers, whatever their preference may be.”
Lebanon Seaboard has been manufacturing lawn and garden products for the consumer lawn and garden, professional sports turf, landscaping and golf course markets since 1947.
