In 2020 we celebrate 45 years in the nursery and landscape business.

During the last 10 years or so we survived the worst recession, my lung cancer, the worst duration freeze event in100 years and loss of thousands of plants but managed to keep going by the Grace of God and the support of our friends and customers.
For this we are very grateful.
Gary, Missy and Leigh Anne Hollar

More plants available daily.  Come See
Perennial Hibiscus 'Red Star'
Ready now.
Beautiful Knockout Roses in three colors  in 3 gallon containers.
Early evening walk through the nursey at sundown after working all day restocking plant dispaly areas on April 24th.
It will soon be time for the beautiful Crape Myrtles to start their Summer show.  The one on the right is the wonderful Natchez with large fragrant flowers. No problem with Aphids on Natchez as compared with the Tuscarora on the left. It makes a great flowering shade tree reaching heights of 30-35 feet.  Notice the somewhat weeping effect when full of flowers.  In the winter the bark peels to expose a beautiful cinnamon colored trunk.

We planted these in our neighborhood many years ago and they have never been cut back ( aka "Crape Murdered" ) Plant them and leave them alone. We have large sizes of these available now.
