Experience the Unusual
Excelsa Gardens grows plants that you won’t find at your average nursery. Mark, Susan and Colin Friedrich are the owners of Excelsa which is located on 30 acres in Loxahatchee, Florida. “We provide a broad range of quality exotic and unusual plant varieties as well as many of the classic favorites”, explains the family. The taste for breathtaking tropicals was acquired while Mark worked at Fairchild Botanic Garden in Miami in 1980. Excelsa Gardens was established in 1990 and was quickly recognized as the place to obtain the “out of the ordinary” cultivars. Plants such as heliconias, gingers, bananas, palms, alocasias, ferns, bromeliads, and calatheas are grown to perfection.
Excelsa Gardens’ day to day operations are centered on building relationships with our customers. We strive to make our customers vision become a reality. We can help design, source, give suggestions for sun or shade applications, and we make sure that our customers are comfortable with the care required for their new plant material.
Here at Excelsa Gardens we are team players and everyone’s responsibilities and diverse strengths provide our customers with over-the-top ideas. Our sales staff are college educated and hold a vast array of experiences. The number one lesson that Excelsa Gardens has taught the staff early on is: never stop learning! If a customer can dream it, we can make it a reality. Whether you are a professional designer or a homeowner, creating a flower show or landscaping your yard, we welcome your questions!
