Greer Farm Nursery & Display Gardens



The Greer Farm has a unique retail nursery. We do not normally stock large numbers of plants and trees nor do we deal in the normal annual plants you can buy at discount stores. We have planted a diverse selection of unique plants, many native to Texas, that give a different balance, texture and color scheme to your garden.

Our display gardens let you appreciate our plants in a natural environment. We can work with you to find the right plants for your home. Please see the photo album for examples of the hundreds of different plants to which we have access.

Spring-Summer 2012

We have some bedding and other plants available.

2012 Tree Specials (best purchased in late fall)

All of these trees and shrubs are in plastic tubs and ready to plant. Prices are for pick-up at the farm. Delivery may be available at extra cost. We accumulate orders until we have a truck load from our supplier, so availability is not at the time of order. Being pot raised, these can be planted at any time, but best transported before they leaf out in the spring.

We can offer a discount on larger orders.

The following trees are recommended for urban and rural landscape. They will provide changing color throughout the growing season ending in spectacular fall foliage. they are fast growing and can achieve three feet of growth a season.

Crape Myrtles

The state shrub of Texas. A summer classic needed in every landscape.

No shrub-tree in Texas can beat the non-stop color in the summer of a mature crape myrtle. They need some care to establish the first year, but after that are heat and drought hardy and can easily stand the long hot Texas summer. These plants are pot grown and can be planted anytime.
