The list below is only a small portion of what we grow; it's just the "staples." At Morningside we carry all sorts of wonderful plants and we generally focus on our personal favorites (of which there are many). That often leads us to grow gorgeous perennials, herbs, native plants, and succulents, among other things. If you're looking for something special, just contact us, we might have it or be able to grow it for you.
