Dümmen Orange Donates Yellowstone Petunia Royalties to Yellowstone Forever

Earlier this year, Dümmen Orange teamed up with Yellowstone Forever to sell Yellowstone Petunias at Lowe’s and independent garden centers throughout North America.

The special variety of petunias was created by Dümmen Orange to commemorate the world’s first national park, Yellowstone, which was established in 1872.

Royalties from the sales of Yellowstone Petunias will support a variety of projects inside Yellowstone’s nearly 3,472 square miles of land.

Dümmen Orange presented a check for $80,000 to Yellowstone Forever, the official nonprofit partner of Yellowstone National Park. The presentation took place at Cultivate’21 in Columbus, Ohio.

Yellowstone Forever’s park priorities include sustainability efforts, the Yellowstone Wolf Project and the Youth Conservation Corps. among others. Donor support helps fund these important projects and ensure the future of Yellowstone for generations to come.

Leadership from Dümmen Orange, Lowe’s and select Lowe’s growers attended Petunias with a Purpose, an event to highlight this year’s successful Yellowstone Petunia program.

All royalties from sales of Dümmen Orange’s Yellowstone Petunias were donated to Yellowstone Forever in a check presentation to the foundation’s CEO and staff.
