Plants We Carry

Our focus is on perennial plants, shrubs, and trees native or adapted to the Central Highlands of Arizona. We carry a large variety of native/adapted plants to fit the many microclimates and various soil types found in the Central Highlands. So, chances are, no matter where you live in the Quad-Cities area we probably have plants that will fit your location and your needs!

Plants we stock have low water requirements once established, are selected for cold-hardiness, and are low maintenance. While some composting might help improve your existing soil, and mulching will help with water retention, when you purchase our plants you can eliminate the muss, fuss, and cost of fertilizing as native plants don’t require that much of your time or money.

Why native plants in your landscape?
– Low water, low maintenance once established
– Adapted to our climate
– Create a habitat for native birds & pollinators

Our selection varies though out the planting season from the first of April through the end of November. So check back often to find that perfect planting for your needs!
