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. Our planting guide will assist in your planning and planting.
Take a look at our 2017 calendar of events. We encourage you to join us for special feature days during the season, where we highlight a specific group of plants. These are fun and informative days to help inspire your gardening experience. Also, take note of our garden center hours, as they change from month to month.
Our friendly staff welcomes your comments and 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 gardening with perennials brings joy to you each day.
Thank you from all of us at Shady Acres
