Welcome to Bright and Beautiful Plants!
69241 State Rd. 23, Walkerton IN 46574
Thank you so much for stopping by. We are a small specialty nursery in Northern Indiana. Our main interest is in late season flowering plants, with a special concern for re-incorporating native plants into the home garden. That being said, we also believe there are many non-native ornamental plants that are very worthwhile in the landscape, due to their easygoing nature and garden value. We are breeders of late and very late season daylilies (a non native plant) and advocate their use as an integral part of a mixed border. Many of the daylilies we sell were bred and evaluated right here.
Come visit us, won't you?
We have extensive display gardens, water gardens and a Garden train. Our nursery is at our home, and you will be more of a welcome friend than a customer. We invite you to bring your lunch and enjoy it in the swing, feed our fish and say hi to our dogs. Rosie the Hosta lady comes by from time to time, and you can chat with her about her favorite plants. We will have some of her Hosta available for sale in our inventory. Marianne the strawberry queen may stop with some fruit that you can sample or buy. You can explore the antique little house on our property and shop for Handmade Garden art, Handpainted slates and Jumble sale treasures. But mostly we want to share our garden with you. Gardens are healing spaces and should serve that purpose for everyone. Did you ever stop to think that by planting a pretty border along your street or road you have made someone who drove past forget their troubles for a minute? That is important in today's world. See our "Who We Are" page for information about our location and hours.
