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.
