Welcome to Flat Creek Plant Farm
Come on down to our family owned retail plant nursery and propagation farm specializing in fruiting plants, perennials, and flowering shrubs, grown for their exceptional performance in the Asheville area. We are open seasonally from March 3rd to October 31st.
Inventory changes weekly and can sell out fast during season, so check back often!
We hope our passion for plants is contagious, and that you find visiting us a joy every single time. Plant people are the best people!
Oh, and remember that when gathering berries, you have to be picky.

Premium Perennial Flowers
We grow a wide variety of perennials in small batches, from plugs supplied by several cutting-edge plant breeders like Walters Gardens and Proven Winners out of Holland, MI. We strive to bring in the best quality starts on the market, bred for a tidy habit and bodacious blooms.
Our perennials are grown outside without a greenhouse, exposed to the elements just like they will be when you take them home. Check out the Monarch collection of butterfly bush, Sugar Buzz bee balm, and Lakota Fire echinacea this year.
For a full list of what we are growin’ and when they will be ready, please visit our Inventory page.
Fruit Trees & Plants
In addition to perennials, we bring in two orders of grafted fruit trees and shrubs from a large wholesale grower in central TN, once in March and again in September. Our next delivery will be here March 17th, so save the date if you are looking for dwarf apple trees, peaches, blueberries, or other fruit plants.
Flowering & Native Shrubs
Finally, we grow natives and flowering shrubs from hardwood and softwood cuttings, grown from our own stock plants. Softwood cuttings are done in coarse river sand with an automatic mist system in July and August, hardwoods through the winter with our fingers crossed.
Cutting propagation this year includes Limelight hydrangea, Phantom hydrangea, Celeste figs, Chicago Hardy figs, elderberries, Red Prince weigela, Courtalor weigela, Silver Dollar hydrangea, Dappled willow, Golden Curls willow, Lynwood Gold forsythia, Japanese Snowball Viburnum, Henry’s Garnet Itea, Miss Kim Lilac, and much more.
