About Us

Flower Moon Nursery was founded by Amanda Taylor in 2022. The nursery is a few miles north of downtown Morganton near Pisgah National Forest and the Linville Gorge. We are a retail and wholesale nursery that is open by appointment. We also offer mail order shipping for many of our plants, and attend various plant sales in the region.

Our specialty is deciduous azaleas that are native to the eastern U.S. We also offer a wide array of native and hard to find trees, shrubs, and perennials. We strive to provide healthy and high quality plant material to homeowners, garden centers, landscapers, botanical gardens/arboretums, and others. We propagate the bulk of our inventory on site, mostly from seed and cutting sources from Western North Carolina.

Prior to starting the nursery, Amanda obtained a bachelor and master's degree in horticulture from Michigan State University and then spent over a decade with NC State working with the nursery and greenhouse industry. We believe in celebrating the beauty of native plants that are all around us and look forward to sharing these amazing plants with you!
