From modest beginnings – as a partnership of two, hardworking Mennonite brothers, Menno and Ira Yoder – Aris Horticulture Inc. (formerly Yoder Brothers Inc.) have grown to be a world leader in flowering research and breeding. Today, almost 95 years after its founding, G. Ramsey Yoder, Menno's grandson, heads a company of 650 employees.
Scott Schaefer, president, and the chief executive officer is in charge of day-to-day operations and shares with Yoder the responsibility of leading the company.
Aris continues evolving to meet the changing horticultural market. In 1995, Blooms of Bressingham® was set up as a new company in North America to introduce exclusive perennials from England. This has since expanded into a global activity, under a new name, Must Have Perennials™, with business partners in many countries and exciting introductions from breeders worldwide. Shortly afterward came the acquisition of Green Leaf Enterprises, now Green Leaf Plants®, one of North America's leading perennial growers. These venues put Aris in an excellent position to capitalize on the popularity of gardening.
