Pioneers in Sustainable Gardening

At High Country Gardens we offer plants, products and information that support long-term ecological balance and builds and sustains the love of gardening for generations to come. Our mission is to improve the earth one garden at a time.

Eco-Friendly Gardening & Native Plants:

We’ve addressed the growing needs for water conservation and environmentally-friendly gardening practices by developing an incredible selection of waterwise and native plants. Our plants are chosen for their hardiness, beauty and their support of habitat creation.

Unique Plant Varieties:

We have built our reputation by developing and offering unique plant hybrids that you cannot find elsewhere. Many of our varieties have been exclusively developed by our Founder & Chief Horticulturist, David Salman, the 2008 American Horticultural Society’s Great American Gardener award winner.

Drought Resistant Plants:

We are especially known for our xeric plants, that need minimal water and care once established. Xeriscaping, the practice of landscaping with drought-tolerant plants, has spread beyond just the Southwest and many of our low-water perennials will thrive nationwide.

Gardening For Four Season Interest

One of the most enjoyable challenges of gardening is working the landscape with an eye toward winter. There's nothing more dispiriting than looking out a window on a cold blustery day only to see snow blowing every which way. Especially if nothing out that window catches your interest. But with a little ingenuity, that same view can turn into a wonderful winter panorama.

Usually all our concerted gardening efforts focus on color and intrigue for summer pleasure. However, many plants noted for adding texture and shape to gardens during the warm months can also prove gratifying during the winter as well. You want to look out that window and see a delightful feast of contour and form.

It was Ralph Waldo Emerson who said: "The leafless trees become spires of flame in the sunset, with the blue east for their background, and the stars of the dead calices of flowers, and every withered stem and stubble rimed with frost, contribute something to the mute music."

It's the skeletons of winter that become the armatures for winter sculptures. With hoarfrost and ice clinging to bare deciduous branches, all kinds of designs will appear—and change as they melt and freeze again.
