Access the Garden’s Nursery Inventory

Located in the courtyard at the Garden, the Nursery at Santa Barbara Botanic Garden is open to members and the public year round. Reservations are NOT required to shop.

Choose from the largest selection of California native plants on the central coast. The Nursery is open during regular business hours, closing 30 minutes before gates come down (10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) Remember, all members are eligible for a 10% discount – every visit. Not a member yet? Join now for this and other great perks.

Our knowledgeable staff members are available to answer your questions and help you handpick the right California-native plants for your garden. With hundreds of varieties available, there is something for everyone.

Interested in only shopping? No problem.

The Nursery is located at 1212 Mission Canyon Road, just inside the Garden entrance. If you’re interested only in shopping with us, please park in one of our “member” parking spots then check-in at the front kiosk where you’ll be given a shopper pass.

Our inventory is always changing so stop in and browse our diverse selection of straight species or native cultivars that we have curated based on their unique beauty and utility in designed native gardens. Or, to get a sense of what we have in stock before you visit, check out our inventory list posted below. Right now, we update this list on a monthly basis (at the front of the month) so please be aware that some inventory will sell out.
