About Us

image144

Welcome to Island Passions Nursery!

Our focus is the plants that will put the WOW  factor into your yard or patio.

Our plants are often described as long blooming, bold and definitely different!

Many of our plants outperform similar cultivars found elsewhere.

Were BIG on flowers and fragrance.

Angels Trumpets blow away pretty much everything in this regard. Waves of MASSIVE flowers from early July to mid October and the fragrance is amazing. 


Best of all the deer NEVER touch them.

 ( poisonous to all so a little care is required )

Or maybe you want a fast bold tropical statement!

These are King Kong Cannas. 

These add a tropical flair to your patio quickly.


Other Cannas just cant keep up.

( Hummingbirds LOVE the flowers. )

Sorry pickup or delivery meet locations only.


As we are not attending markets for 2020 including the Mothers day events,  may we suggest you add our best selling plant the Mexican Snowball to your orders.


 Its a compact heart shaped yellow and pink flower factory that hummingbirds cant resist. Works on patio tables or wherever you want to draw hummingbirds.


 If you have been to our farm markets this is the plant you have seen our customers carrying around en mass.


 VERY little watering needs and it blooms like mad all the way to frost.

Half to full sun.


Sure to brighten many days and lasts a whole lot longer then a bouquet of flowers.

$15
