Current Plant List

For a profile of the species, click on the plant name. Unlinked plants lack profiles and we are working on creating profiles for all plants so check back in.

Because we are still a mobile nursery, we cannot bring every species we grow to every sale.
If you want to ensure that we bring something specific, please email us sales@spadefootnursery.com or message us on social media (Facebook or Instagram) and request that we bring your desired plant. You can meet us at any of our UPCOMING SALES.
Also, note that not all plants can be blooming or fully developed in a container. We carry mostly 1-5 gallon plants.

If there is anything you want but do not see on this list, contact us. Not all plants we have are on this list, though we try to keep it current. Also, we want to know what people are looking for, and can either grow or obtain your desired species.

Plants are divided into the forms they normally take (note that some shrubs can become trees, and there is a subjective difference between some shrubs and groundcover).

We mostly grow plants native to the southwestern United States and Mexico, especially plants familiar to the ecology of our region and beneficial for wildlife. We also carry a few edible non-natives.
