We propagate plants chosen from the Garden's own global collection and provide discerning gardeners rare and uncommon plants that will thrive in local gardens. This is a wonderful opportunity to add something special to your own garden while supporting the Garden's mission of promoting understanding and appreciation of plants and the natural environment and conserving plant diversity.
