Buy Houseplants & Orchids from Anderson's La Costa Nursery Encinitas
We definitely encourage you to visit our expansive greenhouse to fill all of your interior plant needs. We carry an extensive line of indoor plants from the more common to the highly unusual. Everything in Anderson’s greenhouse stock is hand selected from only the premium growers in California – you won't see large truckloads of plants being wheeled into the nursery and placed over by the refrigerators and cement mixers. We take great care and pride in this hand selection process and the resultant quality of the plant offerings reflects this approach.
A visit to our greenhouse is a delight to the senses and affords an opportunity to meet our greenhouse manager (and head of the hand selection team). In our marginally humble opinion we have the very best and most experienced indoor plant expert in Southern California to assist and advise on plant selection, care and maintenance.
A sampling of what is in store in our greenhouse (seasonally dependent):
Orchids: A broad selection of Cattleya, Cymbidium, Dendrobium, Oncidium, Paphiopedilum, Phalaenopsis, Zygopedalums and many rare exotics.
Bromeliads: A great array of colors, sizes and species including and extensive selection of Tillandsia (the ever popular “Air Plant”).
African Violets: From a specialty grower – a beautiful selection of "...the world’s number one selling indoor plant." (yes, even ahead of the Poinsettia).
Dracaena: The Dracaena family makes up an important group of plants used to decorate, scrub the air and make "green" homes, offices, malls, apartments and the landscape around the world. We work with a specialty grower to consistently offer the favorites from amongst the approximately 40 species being commercially propogated.
Indoor Palms: Indoor palms like the Rhapis, Kentia, Chamaedorea (many species) all can add a tropical look to your home (while cleansing the air). We also stock the popular Maya and Areca in numerous species.
Indoor Bonsai: For the ardent Bonsai artisan – a broad range of styles and plant types to choose from –and- if we don't have it we will attempt to find it for you.
Seasonal Color: Including Hydrangea, Poinsettia, Lilies, Reiger Begonia, Caladium and so much more.
Décor: To ensure that your selection is displayed to its optimum we stock the greenhouse with elegant pottery, water features (and more) to help create the best presentation possible.
Even with the great selection of plants and accessories available it is the customer service and professional advice that sets the Anderson greenhouse apart from the crowd – come in and judge for yourself!
