Salt Lake City, UT – When you get them or give them, it's hard to think of flowers as a commodity or a product. Amy Stewart says they may be emotional and impractical, but we Americans buy more flowers than we do Big Macs. In her book Flower Confidential Stewart explores the business of cut flowers. It's a big business by the way. In the process she wonders whether flowers are losing their identity if not just their scent along the way. (Rebroadcast)
