Intrinsic Perennial Gardens

Established in 1992, Intrinsic Perennial Gardens, Inc. is a wholesale container nursery growing mainly one gallon perennials including tender perennials, ferns, grasses, shrubs, and vines. Their market serves landscapers and retailers in the Chicagoland area. They propagate around 80% of their own material, roughly 1/3 by seed, 1/3 by cuttings, and 1/3 by division. Currently they list over 900 varieties.

Their farm sits on 23 acres along the Illinois/Wisconsin border. One of those acres is dedicated to propagation, with field beds totaling 11,000 square feet for plug production. Intrinsic Perennial Gardens, Inc. grows out nearly all of Brent’s breeding, in sizes from plugs to finished gallons. If you need source material, give them a call.
