Offering plants for shady and sunny locations, shrubs, pottery and other plant and garden items, the Verdant Nursery is now open at the west end of the Westpark Mall at 40th and Summitview Avenues.

Described on its sign as “a nursery for keen gardeners”, the nursery is located in Suite 22, the former site of the Royal Buffet restaurant. The building has been renovated with a new roof, more windows, and parking moved to just off Summitview, directly west of barre3 fitness studio.

According to its website, verdantyakima.com, owners Erin Anderson and Mitch Evans were inspired by visits to independent nurseries outside of Yakima to indulge our boundless love for gardening.

“We recognized the need for a high-end nursery that would offer unique plants to avid gardeners,” Anderson and Evans state on the website. “Yakima Gardeners strive for a shopping experience that inspires creativity, prioritizes exceptional customer service and provides expert advice from knowledgeable staff. Verdant invites you to linger and explore the beauty and diversity you can create in the garden.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. Verdant is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. For more information, follow @verdant_yakima on Instagram.
