Endangered Species

We hope the economy recovers soon. In the meantime we are re-organizing our nursery and website, still growing plants, but not selling them until the economy bounces back.

If planting outdoors, what USDA zone would you grow in? (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9-10) or (Or would you grow indoors?)

About us.

Hermine started growing plants on her window sill and fire escape as a little girl in Brooklyn. From 1963-1990 Roger was designing, creating working drawings and supervising construction of buildings for architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Bertrand Goldberg. Hermine joined him to work on hospitals for Harvard University and a church in Boston. Hermine's passion for rare and unusual plants resulted in a tropical growing chamber in the basement of our Boston home. She started a mail-order business growing and selling her own home-grown plants. In 1979 the cold eastern climate drove us to explore southern climates, expanded our interest in Bamboo, Palms, Cycads, Sansevierias and moved us to California.
