Garden Glories Nursery

photo by Stan Gabara

We met Liz Youngflesh years ago on a garden tour in Rancho Santa Fe. She was growing the most beautiful alstroemerias we had ever seen in her backyard nursery. We couldn't believe how many different varieties she had. She was very patient with us and explained how they grew and what conditions the plants needed to survive. Seeing her nursery, we know she loves what she does. Of course, we bought some that day.We have collected over the years many different ones. Some of our favorites are; Tricolor, Third Harmonic, Casa Blanca, and Mikey. They grow (3-4 feet) and last for about two weeks when cut for a flower arrangement. They do best in full sun to part shade. She also grows many different varieties of hydrangeas, so you will have a fun day seeing all her beautiful plants at her nursery.
