The nursery is an outgrowth of a plant collection begun in the 1950's by John and Joyce Hoekstra. They maintained an extensive collection of perennials, ivies, and both hardy and tender succulents. In 2001 the ownership of the nursery passed to Don Mylin, a horticulturist with many years of experience in the nursery and greenhouse trade. The focus was narrowed to include only the succulents. We currently maintain a huge collection of both hardy and tender succulents.
The nursery is located in the upper Willamette Valley roughly an hour from Portland, OR. Since 2009 we have been marketing plants exclusively online via our website. We ship retail orders world-wide the year round.
