Plant Catalog Icon  Plants in Retail

Browse through a sampling of plants recently brought into the retail area. We currently aren’t able to update these pages as often as we'd like, so please don’t assume these lists are all inclusive or that any plant listed didn't just walk out the door 5 minutes ago. Please ask by phone or email if you don’t find something you are looking for and to secure any particular plant.

Plant Catalog Icon  Photo Gallery

Browse through our pictures of the nursery, photogenic plants, animals, gardens - a serendipitous Cistus entertainment.

Weekly lists of additions to retail from our own production houses and elsewhere, an opportunity for our customers to pick up the latest. Again, we can’t promise availability so act quickly if you find a must-have.

Shopping from the Mail Order lists

Mail order plants can be ordered for pick-up at the nursery with 2 days notice for convenience.

Please note: mail order plants are small plants, in 4” or 6” pots, and live in the production houses rather than retail.

Plants on Hold

Customers can call ahead for availability and reserve plants for a later visit. Unpaid plants can be held for a week for customer convenience.

Prepaid plants can be held longer than one week by special arrangement.


We are experts at getting your plants safely into your vehicles. When that isn’t possible, we occasionally are able to deliver. Please inquire for more details.

Our Guarantee

We guarantee that we want our customers to be happy, excited by our plants, pleased with the excellent service and information we provide, and generally enthusiastic about Cistus Nursery. We intend all our plants to leave Cistus healthy and vigorous and our plant information to be helpful and accurate. We want to know about customers’ experiences. Should a difficulty arise that originated at Cistus, we cheerfully replace plants or give store credit. Plant problems resulting from bad weather, neglect, under or over watering, or unsuitable conditions are part of the learning experience for all gardeners and remain the customer's responsibility.
