Cavano's Perennials, Inc. began in 1972 as a small cut flower business on a five acre farm in beautiful Kingsville Maryland, near Baltimore. George Cavano owned a business at a market in Baltimore City, selling, among other things, house plants and cut flowers. To supply that business, George and Marlene Cavano began growing cut flowers, and 'field' mums.

Perennials FlowersIn addition to the market, they also sold flowers right from the farm itself. In 1978 they built a heated greenhouse for seed starting and to grow house plants. Marlene decided to start growing some perennials in the field for use as cut flowers. This was long before perennials began to enjoy their current popularity.

Some of their customers began requesting that they make some of the perennials available in pots, so they did. Soon they produced more than they could sell at the farm, so George hit the road and began selling perennials to garden centers. Landscapers also began to discover the Cavano's nursery.

After some time, George sold his business at the market and began to focus on the growing operation, and during that time, perennials became their primary focus. In 1980, George and Marlene incorporated and became officially Cavano's Perennials, Inc.

In 1990, the Cavanos recruited Marlene's son, Tom Hensler, into the business. Tom spent several years learning the business, and then took over the company, as George and Marlene were approaching retirement age.

In 1996, Tom Hensler purchased a nearby 25 acre property, and one year later began building a completely new growing facility. Cavano's Perennials still continues to grow plants at their original farm, in addition to the new facility.

Today, operating from two locations, Cavano's Perennials Inc. is a thriving nursery/greenhouse operation with 50 employees, growing more than 1,100 varieties of plants and is delivering fine quality material to garden centers, landscape contractors, re-wholesalers and municipalities throughout the eastern United States.
