About Us

Family owned and operated nursery since 1995.

Our History

A Story of Innovation
and Growth

Mountain Crest Gardens™ is a family owned and operated succulent nursery established in 1995, located in the scenic Scott Valley of Northern California near Mt. Shasta.

In the beginning, our nursery grew a few hundred varieties of hardy Sempervivum (Hens and Chicks), Sedum, Jovibarba heuffelii, and Rosularia which we sold via our old mail order catalog. We also wholesaled planted dish gardens and birdhouses to retailers on the west coast. In 2001, our strategy shifted to direct sales and we moved the catalog online. A limited selection of Soft (aka “tender”) Succulents such as Echeveria and Crassula was introduced around this time.

Since then, our collection has grown and expanded to over 1000 different varieties of hardy and soft succulents, including Haworthia, Kalanchoe, Senecio, Aeonium, Tender Sedum, hybrids, and more. New varieties continue to be added to our online catalog each month throughout the year.
