Brillo Verde, our 40 acre farm in Collinsville, TX is where we hand-raise most of our trees and perennials. Brice, our grower, and his team use love and care to grow tiny plant babies into the tall, straight, strong, full and colorful specimens you see in the nursery. Below, Brice shares what’s new, unusual, just coming up, and some cool plants coming into the nursery.
