Monrovia is America’s premier grower with plants available only through quality garden centers.
But things have changed!
Now a select number of Monrovia’s hottest new plants are being sold through the Wayside Gardens print and online catalogs. Perhaps the best way to understand this grower’s unique dedication would be to see how Monrovia growers make all their own soil. Dozens of different mixes are created, each prepared to meet the preferences of a certain plant or plant group. This is definitely not a one-size-fits-all-grower. No wonder their plants share such marked vigor!
If you don’t live close to a Monrovia retailer you can now enjoy the Ice Angels Camellia Series by mail. After a rare hard freeze, an old camellia garden all but died out in the cold. One healthy survivor proved to have more cold hardy genes that the rest of the camellia clan. Growers set to infusing its blood into modern camellia strains that resulted in the Ice Angels series of hybrids. They’re rated a full zone colder than their kin. But cold hardiness has not sacrificed any of their natural beauty!
