At Morning Star Perennials & Nursery, we cultivate more than 500 varieties of Vermont-hardy perennials, trees, and shrubs, including both well-known favorites and uncommon, hard-to-find varieties. Scott’s affinity with trees and his expertise at grafting has led the way to our ever-growing supply of unique woody plants that are available for purchase.

View our plant list for a complete listing.

Because our plants are grown outdoors in healthy soil that has been composted on the premises, the plants we sell have strength and vitality. We fertilize only with our nutritious soil base, a small amount of granular, organic fertilizer, and a foliar seaweed spray. The perennials, trees, and shrubs grown at Morning Star are hardy enough to withstand southern Vermont's harsh winters and, with proper care, our healthy plants will transition well from our farm into your gardens.

We love what we do here at Morning Star Perennials & Nursery, and
we know that our enthusiasm is reflected in the high quality plants
we sell!
