Our Nursery

The McNeals purchased the five-acre property in 2015 and since then have been renovating the buildings and grounds, as well as growing their plant inventory. Their passion is dwarf and and unusual conifers, including firs, pines, cedars, spruces, metasequoias, larches, ginkgoes and more! They also feature a variety of Japanese maples and perennials at the nursery. They ship nationwide and also love welcoming visitors by appointment.
