We Provide Better Value

At Specialty Growers, we believe that plants grown in accordance with natural conditions are able to become better established in the landscape and, thus, are a better value for our customers. Based on this premise, Specialty Growers’ goal always has been to provide top-quality plants that are adapted to Southeast Michigan and fully acclimated to local weather conditions.

Let Us Inspire You

Take a stroll through our 10-acre nursery to view our vast array of perennials and savor the tranquil setting. We will inspire you throughout the gardening season with enticing floral displays, including a garden of woodland wildflowers in the spring, a lush peony exhibit in early summer, a kaleidoscopic field of colorful daylilies in mid-summer,  and a dramatic ornamental grass garden early fall. Our professional staff will be on hand to assist you in selecting plants that are best-suited for your garden and landscape. They also will answer many of your gardening questions.
