ORANGE, Calif. -- Landscape architects and designers looking to take their designs to the next level can turn to wholesale grower Village Nurseries to make their visions a reality.

Many landscape professionals continuously use the same plant palette because they have confidence in proven plant performance, maintenance and design aesthetic. Unfortunately, over time their designs begin to look undifferentiated and stale.

Seeking to break out of this rut, leading professionals are developing fresh designs featuring unique and unusual plants.

To help landscape professionals achieve this goal, Village Nurseries has recently added more than 300 new plants to their vast and diverse plant selection. They include plants such as Purple Pixie Loropetalum, Abelia ‘Kaleidoscope,’ Nandina ‘Obsession,’ Salvia ‘Amistad,’ Berberis t. ‘Orange Rocket’ and Pittosporum t ‘Golf Ball.’ These healthy, high-quality plants are known for longer blooming cycles, vibrant foliage, bold textures and unique growth habits compared to other varieties in their plant genus.

Many are unique or patented plants available only from Village Nurseries through its exclusive partnerships with leading growers such as Monrovia Nursery, Anthony Tesselaar Plants, Plant Haven International and the Sunset Western Garden Collection.

“Many landscape architects and designers I’ve met with have complained about the lack of unique and different planting materials available to them,” says David House, Village Nurseries CEO. “By adding our exclusive and patented new plants, they can achieve their distinctive vision and create dramatic new landscapes.”

Said Bob Clark, principal, Clark & Green Associates Landscape Architecture in Costa Mesa, CA: “Many of the new plant introductions that we are seeing from Village Nurseries are helping us to achieve…plants for smaller spaces as well as plants with low water requirements. The folks at Village Nurseries keep us up-to-date on new introductions.”
