By Land or By Sea, You Can Be a Successful Gardener
When we say we specialize in North Texas native perennials and well-adapted annuals, some people think that limits the choices they have for their yard. You're in for a surprise! There are a wealth of plants that grow well in our region, and when you plant them, you set yourself up for success as a gardener. There's such a variety of plants to choose from, you're not even limited to plants that grow in the soil!
Aquatic plants grow in the water, and you can plant them in a pond, lake, or even your own mini porch pond container. They help stabilize the shoreline and the soil under your pond, oxygenate and improve the quality of the water, and offer a source of food and shelter for fish, frogs, turtles, and more. Oh, and they're pretty, too! If you have a water feature in your yard, or would like to create a container feature on your patio, aquatic plants are a great way to bring visual interest to your outdoor space.
At Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape, we can help you choose the aquatic plants that will best suit your property based on the type of aquatic environment you have, how much sunlight it receives, and what your gardening goals are. Visit our garden center in Frisco, Texas to browse our selection and chat with our friendly staff of horticulture experts. Contact us today for directions!

Shades of Green offers a large, spread out location to purchase many varieties of plants and trees. While there isn’t every variety under the sun, you will find some that aren’t well known. Most are good for the Texas heat and soil.
I needed a tree replaced and I shopped around at the other local tree farms. The staff here seemed much more helpful and they were able to help me with the tree I needed for a fair price. It’s also a nice place just to walk around and browse.
Stopped there with almost zero knowledge on the shrubs, left with the knowledge of expert :-). Elizabeth answered all my questions walked me through the different selections they had in store, and helped me make my decision. I never got disappointed from this place. People like Elizabeth make it more pleasant. Keep up the good job!
