 Thousands of happy customers in 49 states for over 10 years!  Thanks!

We are plant freaks and gardeners ourselves

  • Three of our greenhouse staff members either have university horticultural degrees or will soon have them 
  • Others on staff, have hundreds and even thousands of different hosta, coral bell and heucherella varieties growing in their beautiful gardens

Environmentally preferable growing and business operation

  • Do not heat greenhouses in the middle of winter and cool as naturally as possible in summer to reduce energy consumption and keep our prices low  
  • Little plastic is used in our growing operation or during shipping
  • Do not buy plants in or grow in thick, big plastic pots that are often difficult to recycle
  • Reduce, reuse and recycle when ever possible
