Welcome to Shady Acres Perennial Nursery

Shady Acres is a local, family-owned business that has been serving the green industry for 56 years. Perennials are our specialty, and we are known for our outstanding selection of top-quality plants. Grown right here in our New Berlin, Wisconsin nursery, we offer over 1200 varieties! We invite you to browse our garden center, where all the plants we grow are displayed 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. If your space is limited, perennials and herbs also work well in container gardens. You can use our on-site potting shed to “create-a-container” that is colorful, portable and easy to maintain.

Stroll through our display gardens to see many 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. Add the finishing touch with a colorful birdbath, soothing wind chimes or a piece of charming garden décor from our unique selection.

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 informative, inspiring and enjoyable!

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 are here to help with plant selection, garden ideas, container plantings, or any special requests. Happy gardening!

Thanks from all of us at Shady Acres
