WHERE TO FIND THE BEST INDOOR AND OUTDOOR PLANTS, FLOWERS, AND GREENERY IN NEW ORLEANS

New Orleans’ hot and humid climate makes it the perfect environment for indoor and outdoor plants of various species. The long summers allot more time for nurseries and gardens to grow, while the mild winters prevent damage from hard freezes. As a result, there are plenty of nurseries, garden centers, and pop-up shops to explore within the city.

Urban Roots Garden Center

Those with a green thumb will enjoy the colorful outdoor space of Urban Roots, a paradise filled with exotic plants. Cacti, succulents, trees, and orchids fill the palettes throughout the shop. The indoor gift shop has fun plant accessories, pots, and garden decor.

A trip to Urban Roots can become an all-day experience with more than just plants. Coffee connoisseurs can grab a latte while they shop. Urban Roast, attached to Urban Roots, serves various coffee and tea selections throughout the day. The store also cares for many kittens, bunnies, chickens, and sometimes pigs. Visitors can adopt any animal they feel connected to.

Harold’s Plants

In the Bywater lives Harold’s Plants, a bright and thriving plant nursery. A colorful mural of tropical flowers welcomes visitors into the building. The partially shaded outdoor area showcases palettes of flowering tropical plants alongside pathways of thriving greenery. Visitors will find seeds, gardening tools, soils, mulches, and pottery inside. Harold’s is home to many cats, but these are not up for adoption.

Ninth Ward Nursery

Founder Marc Sanders fell in love with bamboo while creating a natural privacy fence in his own home. He then decided to assist others in all things bamboo, tropical plants, and outdoor spaces. Ninth Ward Nursery is a spot where visitors can find many foliage species to accentuate their homes.

The Plant Gallery

Family-owned and operated, the Plant Gallery is more than just a plant shop. In addition to the colorful pots and plants sold in the space, the shop also offers landscaping and floral services. The Plant Gallery provides the greater New Orleans area with residential and commercial landscaping alongside wedding florals and decorative arrangements.

Fait NOLA

Inside a quaint turquoise delivery truck, Fait NOLA sells boutique potted plants and accessories all around New Orleans. Visitors can find the mobile pop-up shop at coffee shops, boutiques, and grocery stores. Plant lovers will walk into the truck in awe of the greenhouse roof and shelves of exotic tropical greenery.
