|Perfectly Hawaiian plants are grown in Hilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii, by Hawaii Nurseries Inc.
Patrick McGrath recognized the island's resources when he came here in the early seventies to establish a nursery, collecting cuttings and shipping plants to the mainland. Growing up in the farmlands of Imperial Valley, California, McGrath's interest in agriculture developed into a passion for horticulture and tropical plants. Now president of Hawaii Nurseries, Patrick McGrath has realized his vision of being Hawaii's foremost producer of exceptional quality plants.
Today, we have ten acres of nursery and over 100 acres of field stock. We ship weekly by air and ocean container to our California distributors, who acclimate our plants and supply them to interiorscapers nationwide.
Hawaii Nurseries began a major expansion program in 1998 to keep up with the growing demand on the U.S. mainland for our plants. This program will enable us to deliver greater quantities of specimen Rhapis, our famous cut-back Dracaena and more of our popular Dracaena Hilo Girl to mainland U.S. and international interiorscapers in years to come.
We invite you to visit our nursery, when business or pleasure brings you to our beautiful island.
