About Us

Welcome to Parsons Nursery, the Southeast’s premier grower of container trees, shrubs and perennials. Family owned and operated, Parsons Nursery was started by Louis Parsons in 1959 after graduating from Clemson University with a degree in Ornamental Horticulture. Starting out with a small growing operation, garden center and landscaping company, Louis Parsons, along with his wife and life partner Sylvia, were pursuing the American dream. In the 1980’s, they transitioned the company away from retail and landscape services to focus on annual, perennial and container plant production, building a reputation for providing premium quality products and outstanding customer service.

Today, Parsons Nursery is an industry leader in container plant production and plant distribution, servicing landscape professionals, retail garden centers, and landscape distributors throughout the Carolinas and Mid-Atlantic states.

Whether grown on our farms or brought in through our trusted vendor network, Parsons Nursery is committed to bringing a wide selection of landscape trees, shrubs and perennials. Our dedicated staff of horticultural professionals and plant specialists work every day to improve methods, materials and procedures to ensure unsurpassed consistency and excellence in everything we grow. Through meticulous pruning practices, root manipulation, and improved cultivar selection we strive to have every product delivered exceed your expectations.

After 55 years of growing, the legacy of Louis Parsons continues with the same dedication to unsurpassed quality and outstanding service.
