The Beginning
Our beginning traces back to 1952 when the nursery was founded by John and Jean Overdevest. What started out as an immigrant’s dream, soon developed into a small operation specializing in Azaleas, Rhododendrons, Dogwoods, and Japanese Maples. With the energy and determination that has proven to be the hallmark of our nation’s immigrants, the nursery expanded and prospered.

The Next Generation
We are proud to continue in this same spirit as we continue our expansion and diversification. Fittingly, these efforts are admirably accomplished by yet another wave of immigrants and others who through their ancestors share that same bond of coming to America for a chance to better themselves and their families.

Sustainable From The Start
We have embraced environmentally-conscious growing practices from the very beginning – whether it is recycling irrigation water, integrated pest management, or using renewable potting substrates. In 2012 we formally acknowledged our commitment to sustainability by achieving the rigorous requirements of the Veriflora® Sustainable Grown certification program -- recognized as the gold standard of sustainability in the floriculture and horticulture industries. To this day, we are one of a select few wholesale nurseries to carry the distinction of Veriflora® certification.

Better Plants, Better Opportunities, Better Results
We specialize in just-in-time deliveries of colorful, retail-ready plant material positioned for maximum consumer interest. Over the years we have developed a reputation for: unsurpassed qualitycookie-cutter consistency, and exceptional customer service. We believe that consistently great plants and stunning beauty translates into delighted retail consumers and quicker retail turns for you.

“One-Stop” Shopping
Our extensive product line of trees, shrubs, vines, perennials, and patio plants featuring the latest introductions as well as established varieties allows us to fulfill your green good needs from spring through winter. We believe in your ability to choose programs that suit your customer base and therefore provide convenient access to all the national plant brands as well as regional, IGC-only focused programs as well.
