High Country Gardens: Our Story

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.
