About Gilbert H Wild

Dear Gardening Friends

Our passion since the foundation of Gilbert H. Wild and Son© has been to provide plant lovers with many of the world’s finest varieties with excellent pricing and our 2024 Spring catalog proves just that. We grow our own plant stock, unlike most mail-order companies, so we can control quality and shipping costs. We work for years producing home grown plants that we are proud to grow, dig and ship directly to you.

Our history began when James Herman Wild was on a wagon train bound for the southwest when it broke down in the Southwest Missouri region. James was influenced by the beautiful meadows of wildflowers he saw and settled in Sarcoxie, MO in 1868. In 1885, his son, Gilbert Herman Wild paid $45.00 for a crate of peony roots from Europe which he planted behind his family’s home. Three years later, the flower blooms were sold to an Omaha Wholesaler for $3.00 each. That single sale launched Gilbert H. Wild and Son! As the family farm grew, daylilies and iris were added to the farm.
