How is American Plant different from other garden centers?
For 95 years, we've been a popular garden center in the D.C. area, a third-generation family-owned
business. American Plant has evolved into more than a garden center. While maintaining the
company’s core values, Brett, Erik and Todd Shorb continue to expand the business and provide
customers with something new and exciting each year.
American Plant is a one-stop shopping destination with a wide selection of garden supplies,
annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs. The stores' greenhouses have exquisite orchids, houseplants
and creative custom arrangements. Tinge, our lifestyle boutique, offers home décor, and an amazing
selection of gifts that can’t be found anywhere else in the area.
Much of what we do is offering guidance and one-on-one service when you're shopping. We have
a tradition of offering organic, earth-friendly gardening solutions, as well as a strong family legacy of
quality service and personal attention. Our grandfather built American Plant treating his customers
like they were guests in his own home.
A trip to American Plant is an experience—not just an errand you have to run. Our locations offer
an experience of tranquility and excitement all wrapped up in one visit!
We're looking for a complete outdoor living area – can you help?
American Plant’s knowledgeable and experienced in-house landscape design/build/maintain team
works with customers looking to transform—or custom-create—outdoor spaces. Features may include
beautiful natural stone walls, patios, custom fireplaces and much more.
We also specialize in drainage issues and are able to navigate you through Montgomery County's
RainScapes Program that contributes to such projects. Our designers are able to create an overall
plan that can be implemented in stages. At the same time, we include a maintenance package
estimate. Professional maintenance keeps your landscape looking fabulous throughout the year.
