A family-owned nursery striving to offer our customers exactly what our company name suggests: the perfect plant!
Our 30+ years of extensive experience began in 1980, when we opened a nursery located on a small farm here in North Florida. Since then, we have grown exponentially through our steadfast commitment to the satisfaction of every customer who walks through our doors, our unwavering dedication when it comes to growing healthy, beautiful plants and trees that customers can depend on, and a staff who shares our passion and respect for all things that grow from the ground. In addition to our residential customers, our nursery currently supplies garden centers along the east coast with an array of quality shrubs and trees.
Our online operations began in 2013, and our unique location enables us to supply a large variety of plants all over the country—and chances are, we just might have the “perfect plant” for your particular climate.
Being a family-owned and operated company that has built its reputation on quality over the last 30 years, Perfect Plants is committed to giving each and every order the careful and detail-oriented attention required to ensure your utmost satisfaction. We review every order we receive, ship each plant true to its name, package our plants in a careful manner, and are available for any and all questions that you might have.
Howdy! My roots run deep in the plant world, having grown up on my family nursery that was started in 1980. From tractor rides with dad, to selling plants to people all over the USA thru ETSY is very rewarding. Happy Planting! :)
Our 35+ years of extensive experience began in 1980, when our father purchased land to start growing his own wholesale plant nursery business. He had a desire to work for himself along with a vision to better the plant products being offered to the consumer while raising his children outdoors with strong work ethics themselves.
We all grew up around the farm; it’s where we experienced our first tractor rides, Easter egg hunting in the daylily bins, games of frisbee while watering plants on the weekends and summer jobs learning the value of a warm day’s work. The nursery grew along with us too; we started with a few single beds and now span about 50 acres. Now, our children are learning the same values and traditions today as we did then.
While our nursery supplied landscapers and garden centers in the southeast with an array of quality shrubs and trees, the desire for our quality of plants to be able to reach more individual consumers is what began our online operations in 2013.
This nursery isn’t just our business, it’s our life. Since we are so involved in the growing of the plants on a daily basis, we can vouch for the quality of every plant purchased from us. Since our humble beginnings, we have steadily grown through our steadfast commitment to the satisfaction of every customer, our unwavering dedication when it comes to growing healthy, beautiful plants and trees that customers can depend on, and a staff who shares our passion and respect for all things that grow from the ground.

Accepted payment methods
Upside Down Box Test
Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term upside down box test and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.
We currently ship our plants using FedEx as we have found them to offer the most reliable, safe and economical delivery service. We usually fulfill orders on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays as shipping on these days ensures your plant(s) will arrive to you by weeks end and not spend any unnecessary time boxed in the shipping process.
Unfortunately at this time we are unable to fulfill orders to California and Arizona due to agricultural regulations. We also do not ship to Hawaii and Alaska due to their distance from us and the sensitive nature of the products we ship.
No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes. Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us. We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible. Our full plant warranty can be found here.
The quality of both your plants and your experience working with us is our number one priority. If you have any problems or are anything less than satisfied with our plants or our service, please let us know and we will do everything within our power to change that.
Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t usually happen though.
Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?
Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery. Growing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.
Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!
Returns and exchanges
Despite our utmost efforts to ensure your plants are delivered safe, alive and ready to bloom (if they aren’t already blooming!), once your plants have left our nursery they are dependent upon the delivery service to arrive safely and then upon your own care for them to thrive.
Perfect Plants offers a five-day warrantee on all plants we ship. In order to take advantage of this warranty, should your plant(s) arrive damaged, you will need to submit a photo of the damaged plant(s) to us within five days of the plant’s delivery. Please message us to send your notice or claims. We will make a note of your damaged plant(s), and if your plant(s) dies within 45 days of your notification and photo(s), we will offer you a 100% store credit on the purchase price of your plant(s).
If you do not notify us within the five-day period, we will extend a 50% store credit on the purchase price of your plant(s) up to 45 days after your shipment date. Note: Shedding, color-changing, or damaged leaves are not included in this warranty. Trees and shrubs by nature will occasionally shed leaves as their natural way of protecting themselves from unnatural heat, cold or lack of sunshine, which are all potential possibilities in the shipping process. Once you trim the yellow or dead leaves off of your tree or shrub, new foliage will soon begin to grow.
Please note that we prune our deciduous (meaning a tree or shrub that sheds its leaves annually) trees before shipping and they will typically arrive with little to no leaves, and at times, little to no branching. However, the tree should be properly branched out and full of leaves within two seasons. If your deciduous tree happens to be shipped while dormant in the winter or spring season, and does not come out of its dormant state by April 30th, Perfect Plants will extend to you a 100% refund on the purchase price of our plant(s) outside of the five-day notification period.
Although we strive to offer you any and all resources within our means when it comes to properly taking care of your plants, we have yet to perfect a way to guarantee your own personal gardening skills, hungry animals, ordering plants outside of your recommended growing zones, human damage, weather damage, drought, insects, disease or poor soil conditions. Plants are living organisms and are susceptible to numerous different fates for reasons outside of our control.
Perfect Plants is built on loyal relationships with our customers, and to promise you unrealistic or impossible plant guarantees would sacrifice our integrity in those relationships. However, we do take great measures to ensure that our plants are sent to you safe, healthy, and viable so that they may thrive in your landscape’s environment.
