Keepsake Plants was formerly a part of Yoder Brothers, widely known for its outstanding mum breeding for nearly 60 years. Yoder sold its mum genetics in October 2008, along with the Yoder brand name. As a result, the company changed its name to Aris Horticulture Inc. and reorganized its product offerings under two new divisions, based on its brand names that already had recognition in the horticultural industry: Keepsake Plants® is a wholesale producer of finished, flowering potted plants for retailers, and Green Leaf Plants® is a producer of starter plants and pre-finished products for growers.
