Welcome to Shady Acres Perennial Nursery

Shady Acres is your destination for locally grown perennials. Since 1958, our family-owned business has been serving the green industry. Perennials are our specialty, and we are known for our outstanding selection of top-quality plants. We offer over 1200 varieties including perennials for sun or shade, ornamental grasses, native plants, groundcovers and fresh herbs! We invite you to browse our garden center, where all the plants we grow are arranged in an easy-to-find fashion.

Perennials are the perfect choice for enhancing your outdoor areas. A garden that changes through all four seasons will bring years of beauty and enjoyment. Stroll through our display gardens to see mature perennials growing in a garden environment. Come often to observe how the foliage and blooms change throughout the season. Then, use your creativity to design a garden that reflects your own personal style.

Check out our popular calendar of events. Join us for hands-on planting projects, fun events and special feature days throughout the season. Each event is designed to help make your gardening experience more inspiring.

Our friendly staff welcomes your questions. Whether you are new to perennial gardening or have years of “trowel and error”, let us know how we can assist you. We hope you enjoy each moment spent in your gardens.

Thanks from all of us at Shady Acres
