Welcome to Terrapin Gardens.
We are a small mail-order nursery located in the Seattle, Washington area offering a selection of annuals, perennials, succulents, and trees.

We started out in 2001 with only a handful of plant offerings, but our plant list has been growing steadily since then. Most of our plants are uncommon or unusual, and we try out new plant varieties every year.

Please use the menu on the left to browse our online catalog. (Sorry, but we don't offer a printed version of the catalog.) On the plant pages, we have included our own plant photos where possible, and will be adding more photos every year.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to e-mail us at  

New for 2010

Tweedia caerulea

We were lucky to obtain seeds from England this year -- from salvia collector Robin Middleton, so we have rarities such as Salvia miniata, Salvia trijuga, and Salvia amethystina subsp. ampelophylla this spring. Favorites from last year include Tweedia caerulea (photo above). See our complete list of perennials and annuals, and order before we run out. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, see us at the FlorAbundance Spring Plant Sale.
