Plant Delights Nursery

About Us

Plant Delights Nursery is a family-owned, international retail mail-order nursery, established in 1988, offering native and rare perennials to passionate gardeners around the world.

Our love for interesting plants, and making them widely available, is equaled only by our passion for enriching the gardening lives of our customers. Our concern goes far beyond selling plants…it matters to us how they perform in our customer's gardens.

Despite being best known as a mail-order nursery, we actually exist for our work as a private 28-acre botanical garden and plant research facility focusing on ex-situ plant conservation, plant exploration, breeding, and propagation. We have had several new plant species named from our collections, with more in the pipeline.

Our horticultural educational efforts are visible in our catalog, our website, our presentations around the country, in public and scientific publications, and now on social media.
