ATTRA has a publication titled Woody Ornamentals for Cut Flower Growers 
that you should find useful.  You can find it--with photos in color--on 
our Web site, or order a free printed copy--black and white--by calling 
us at 800-346-9140.  On my own place, I currently have American 
Beautyberry ready to harvest, am growing red twig dogwood to be sold as 
bare branches anytime after hard frost, and forsythia, which blooms in 
the spring.  
Bulbs to plant now for spring flowers:  daffodils, tulips, Dutch iris, 
Alliums.  We can send more information about any of these, including 
plant or bulb sources, if you need that information.
