Mountain States Wholesale Nursery

Celebrating over 50 years and growing!

Mountain States Wholesale Nursery is a wholesale nursery specializing in drought tolerant plants.  We offer a wide variety of desert native trees, shrubs, ornamental grasses, accents, flowering perennials, groundcovers, and vines to the wholesale market.

We specialize in growing landscape plants that combine beauty and water economy. It is our ongoing mission to provide the highest quality plants, allowing the fulfillment of design concepts that reflect the true spirit and beauty of the desert. We cordially invite our wholesale customers to visit our nursery, and explore our large inventory of landscape plants collected from the deserts of the world.

We do not sell to the general public, but you can find our plants at retail nurseries and wholesale outlets listed on the resources tab of this website.

What’s New at MSWN

As of November 1st, 2022, our Glendale nursery was sold and MSWN is now operating solely at our (previously) secondary location in Cochise, Arizona. Fortunately, we have far more acreage in Cochise for expanded growth and future development. We have every intention to build back bigger and stronger than we ever were before.

That being said, 2023 was a big year for us. Through the hard work and dedication of our incredible team, along with the support we received from our amazing customers and nursery community, we were able to accomplish the following;

  • We built 10 new greenhouses, adding an additional acre under cover
  • Implemented a new ERP inventory and accounting system
  • Built a temporary loading dock
  • Built a new potting house
  • Added electrical in multiple areas to support future growth and expansion
  • Setup a small office and living quarters for employees commuting from Phoenix

What we have planned for 2024.

  • We are working to have another new propagation house completed this summer
  • Additional potting house to accommodate our production needs
  • Continue to develop new fields to increase our production capacity
  • Constructing additional hoop-houses
  • We have doubled the size of our staff, and continue to hire
