|Tony Urschitz and Stacey Stecher: proud owners of Chelsea Nursery|
Not a bad backdrop for a native plant nursery! That's Mt. Garfield towering over them.
|A picture I took two years ago when I visited: Cylindropuntia viridiflora (left) and C. whipplei (right) were in full bloom then!|
The nursery is really quite large--and unlike so many garden centers, they grow practically every twig themselves from seed or cutting.
A wonderful variety of plants--herbaceous, woody, succulent, shrubs and even trees!
The cacti are to DIE for...
You can probably tell that I'm a succulent fancier...
A nice block of Blonde Ambition blue gramma grass. They have a great assortment of Plant Select--particularly the native plants in that program.

Can you tell I was smitten by the Eriogonum corymbosum.
