Notestein's Nursery

Plant Selection

Polyploid daylilyAll of the plants shown on this page are from our nursery. While the plants' beauty and quality are apparent, the photos illustrate another important consideration that isn't so obvious: These are not pampered houseplants that received a lot of TLC to keep them happy and healthy. All these plants were grown outdoors under normal conditions, so you can be confident that they're well-adapted to our local climate.

We maintains a nursery so we can provide the highest quality native and appropriate non-native plants to our garden design clients. If you're interested in particular plants listed below, but don't need garden design services, call Jim at 352-372-2107 to discuss your needs and set up an appointment to come by.

Notestein's Nursery plants are available retail, wholesale or contract-grown at:
