nursery was started by the grandfather of the current owner,
Van Wade. Originally, they specialized in landscape trees
which still make up a large part of the business. In the
1980's, Wade and his wife, Shirley, started selling
a big scale and today's collection in the display gardens
numbers well over 3,000 cultivars. Also on display are many
daylilies and ornamental grasses.
NOTE: With much sadness, we have to report that
Van Wade passed away in 2017. In early 2019, it was announced that this
nursery will be closed.
