Apalachee Nursery is located in Zone 6 of the Southern Appalachian Mountains at an elevation of 1600′.
Apalachee Nursery has been growing since 1979. We specialize in propagating and growing plants native to the Eastern United States. Since we are located in the Southern Appalachian Mountains, we use Apalachee, the Cherokee name for the North American continent, as our nursery name. Since we are limited in space, we concentrate on field growing shrub liners rather than trees. This gives us an opportunity to service wholesale growers who might prefer a broad selection of bed grown and/or container grown native shrubs available at one nursery. However, we also have available a limited number of finished Ball & Burlap and Container Plants in Quart & 1 gallons and in 3 gallons. And, check out our Bare Root availability here. We are located in a region that has one of the greatest diversity of plant species in the world. This diversity is due in large part to our high rainfall, rich soils and the combination of warm days and cool nights during the growing season. These factors also give our crops most favorable growing conditions. Our plant material is nursery propagated from seeds, cuttings or divisions. All bare-root liners are grown on raised beds in enriched soil conditions amended with pine bark, manures and/or peat moss.
Sincerely, Keith Kilpatrick and Taylor Kilpatrick
“And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight…”
