Elk Mountain Nursery
specializes in plants native to the Eastern United States. We are
one of the pioneer nurseries on the Web. Our Catalog has
been online since 1996.
Our nursery is located in the mountains of Western North Carolina. The long, cool growing season; coupled with a short, but intense winter; makes Asheville an ideal site for a nursery serving the Eastern United States. The nursery is in USDA Zone 6, allowing us to grow a wide variety of species adapted to both cooler and warmer areas.
We take great pride in providing vigorous, healthy plants.
- All plants offered in this catalog are nursery propagated from seed, cuttings and divisions.
- All plants are grown and wintered over outdoors to insure hardiness and to be properly hardened off.
- All plants are container grown. We want to be assured of providing vigorous, healthy plants so we do not sell in the spring until new growth is evident.
Many botanic names have changed. We are up to date on some but will still use
of the older ones until the new names become better known. If
please let us know...
