Our History

Stewartia pseudocamelia

A specialty nursery from the beginning

Our initial strategic plan to propagate unusual woody plants in wholesale quantities has never fundamentally changed. We grow the most desirable and rare of seedling trees – Acer griseum, Cercidiphyllum, & Stewartia. Red and Green Japanese Maple seedlings have been staple items for more than 40 years. As a unique companion endeavor, we grow native plants and farm-grown wildflower seeds for habitat restoration in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Read More>>>

If it weren't for Heritage Seedlings, Japanese Stewartia would not be part of the fabric of the North American landscape today.”
