Cultivating health & happiness through American-grown plants

At Por La Mar Nursery, our mission is to cultivate health and happiness through American-grown plants.

Our roots date back to 1972, when Ron & Pat Caird began growing plants for sale at the Los Angeles Flower Mart in Southern California. Fifty years later, we’re working to grow as “green” as possible by establishing meaningful sustainability standards so we can reduce our footprint on the environment while growing plants that bring you joy, health, and happiness.

Our family loves foliage.

Our team loves growing the highest-quality plants and each person at Por La Mar Nursery is dedicated to caring for our plants until they’re ready to make the journey to their new homes.

For fifty years, we’ve been cultivating a mission-focused, plant-loving family, and it shows in everything we grow.

Plants make life better.

We truly believe that plants make lives better. Not only do plants help improve indoor air quality by creating fresh oxygen in your environment, but they also help reduce stress, boost productivity, and improve your mood.

Working with plants is proven to be therapeutic and they even help speed up recovery after an illness.

Let's be friends
