A Low-Maintenance, Drought-Tolerant Landscaping Choice
There are hundreds of varieties of cacti and yucca, each of them uniquely evolved to thrive in particular regions. While we tend to think of them as desert plants, many grow in the jungle, in the mountains, and in cold climates as well as throughout the deserts of the world. At Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape, we specialize in plants that are suited to Frisco and North Texas, including cacti and yucca.
If you have a particular image in your head of what a cactus or a yucca looks like, you may be surprised to see the incredible diversity we have in our plant inventory. Whatever your aesthetic preferences, you can find cacti and yucca to match. These unique plants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with blooms of different colors.
We take a personal interest in your garden, so we can help you find the cacti and yucca best suited to your land and your lifestyle. Contact us for directions, then stop by to visit our Frisco, TX garden center to chat with our knowledgeable team about your new plants.

With our expertise and years of experience, we've matched countless customers with the ideal plants for their homes and yards. Take a look at what they have to say about their experience with our nursery and landscaping team:
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!
Friendly service. Excellent selection of healthy plants. Close to home.
We received amazing service selecting the plants for our backyard landscaping project and the delivery guys were awesome too. Everyone was so helpful and easy to work with. We love Shades of Green and are customers for life. And our yard looks amazing now!
The staff at Shades of Green is knowledgeable and always helpful when I visit. They have a wide variety of plants to choose from and can help you walk through what will grow best at your home. The prices are competitive and the gift shop is packed with unique gifts! I recommend Shades of Green to all of my family and friends.
Beautiful nursery with great vibes, friendly staff and very helpful. Definitely coming back.
Why Get Your Cacti and Yucca From Shades of Green Nursery + Landscape
Cacti and yucca require very little water, and they're easy to maintain. Because they tend to grow slowly, you can confidently plant them without worrying they may outgrow their space. They usually live a long time, too, so you can enjoy the beauty they bring to your yard for years to come.
Cacti can be grown indoors or outdoors. Pot them on your window sill, or give them a permanent home in your garden, by your front porch, or along your back fence. Plant them alongside other succulents, native perennials, and well-adapted annuals to create an outdoor space unlike any other.
When you visit our garden center and nursery to choose your cacti and yucca, you'll be treated to a wide selection of healthy plants that we know will grow well in North Texas. We'll ask you about your growing space, your aesthetic preferences, and more to help you choose the plants that will truly be at home with you. It's important to us to share the joy of gardening, so we make ourselves available to answer your questions and teach you everything we know about how to help your plants thrive.
