Harris Seeds' Walters Gardens Perennial Program

Walters Gardens is one of the United States largest wholesale perennial growers, with a reputation for superior quality, excellent service and cutting edge new varieties. A tremendous selection of field grown bare-root perennials and greenhouse produced perennial liners brings you the best varieties on the market!

Unlike most plugs and liners, these perennial plants have long crop production cycles, and they are not grown to order. Orders are placed against the plant material available for the season. Some varieties sell out early, so it is best to order well in advance. Fortunately, Walters has week by week availability of about 1000 varieties, so if the item you chose for a certain week is not available, most likely there is a great alternate choice!

Proven Winners®
As a Proven Winners® partner, Walters Gardens is the starting point of the extensive trialing process for PW perennials, and helps bring outstanding selections to the market with the success of the Proven Winners® brand and extensive marketing campaigns.
