"IF UNIQUE IS WHAT YOU SEEK" Not the usual inventory carried by most garden centers, Evergreen Gardens strives to offer rare and unusual garden plants you won't find in your neighbor's yard!

Come shop the largest selection of garden conifers and alpine plants in Central Iowa! In addition, you will find rare and unusual companion plants, trees, and troughs.

Please click on the tabs above to view our 2015 inventory. There you will find detailed descriptions of the itmes we carry. Our inventory ranges from 4" pots to balled and burlapped trees. From time to time, we may also have items not inventoried on this site. So, please come and see us!

If you are looking for something you do not see, please do not hesitate to call. We begin ordering the beginning of summer for the following year. If we do not stock it, we will order it for you (providing it is available).


Please call for an appointment!

Garden conifers offer texture not afforded by perennials and shrubs. Use them as focal points or to hide unwanted views. All sizes, all shapes, all colors!

The American conifer society categorizes conifers as follows:

      Miniature: Grows < 1" per year

      Dwarf: Grows 1-6" per year

      Intermediate: 6-12" per year

      Large: Grows > 12" per year

Large or small, we have them all!

Please understand this is a "home-based" business. Quite often I am in the backyard or on the "north end" of the property. So, if you do not see anyone at first, you may ring the doorbell or just be patient - I usually discover that you are here.

I do have a young beagle which is TOO friendly! HE enjoys greeting my customers...try as I might, he often gets there before I do. For this reason, please leave your pets at home and keep children in the car until he is contained.
