Plant Catalog

from Gold Rush Nursery

Our goal is to have descriptions and pictures of all our plants in this online Plant Catalog.  We're focusing first on plants we commonly have available for sale.  In the meantime, if you're looking for a plant that's not listed here or for more information on one that's listed but doesn't yet have any information, please call or email us.

You can choose to display the plants in alphabetical order by either their common name or botanical name.  In addition, if you're only interested in one particular type of plant - California natives for example - you can select that option from the Plant Type drop down menu.

If you want to do a more detailed search of our plant catalog, go to the Plant Search page.
