If you’re a fan of flowers, don’t miss out on a visit to Rountree Plantation’s well-organized greenhouse. Having been in business for four decades, this plant nursery has become one of the major go-to places of generations of Charlotte horticulturists needing quality flowering plants for their respective gardens.

Running low on gardening supplies? The nursery has a section in its garden center reserved for organic lawn and garden products, garden tools, accessories, and birdbaths.

Campbell’s Greenhouses
209 McDonald Avenue

Located right behind mom-and-pop ice cream and burger joint Mr. K’s Soft Ice Cream, Campbell’s Greenhouses is a small but well-stocked plant nursery in the South End.

Like many plant nurseries in the city, you’ll find more trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals than you’ll ever need. But for Charlottean gardeners and landscapers in the know, Campbell’s is the source for bonsai plants and orchids. Pick up unique varieties and get points from the incredibly attentive staff to ensure dramatic blooms.

Ross Perennial Plant Farm
9424 Community House Road

Drive to Ross Farms for the best perennials and groundcovers in the city. This farm has been open to plant enthusiasts, landscapers, and wholesalers since 1993. It takes pride in offering perennial varieties native to the Tar Heel state—a list that includes goldenrod, Husker Red beardtongue, blue wild indigo, and many more.

The owners of Ross Farms are self-proclaimed “plant lovers and fanatics” who use environmentally conscious methods to grow their plants. North Carolina Native Plant Society includes the nursery in its list of recommended and approved sources for native seeds and plants.
