Shade Perennials

A: We grow as many as we can ourselves. Most of our annuals, both flowers and vegetables, and many of our perennials we grow ourselves from seed, cuttings, or small plugs. Although we do not grow all our own trees, shrubs, and roses, we do bring them in from growers dedicated to the highest quality plants. Our fall mums and poinsettias are also grown ourselves from small plugs.

A: While we do not offer professional landscaping design services, we are more than willing to advise you on which plants would work best in your landscape. We have very creative and dedicated employees willing to help you coordinate your landscape to make it look bright and beautiful.

A: Although we do not have an installation crew, we do offer delivery services for any size order. There is a flat fee for delivery. This means that whether you get one plant or fill a whole truck, it's all the same charge.

We do have relationships with many landscapers and are happy to make recommendations if you are looking for professional installation.

A: We believe it is still worth the trip to come take a look around. Our 9 acre greenhouse offers a massive selection of annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, roses, vegetables, and more. We have become the one stop shop for all your gardening needs. We specialize in growing hanging baskets, growing approximately 70,000 this past year. We grow high quality plants and sell them at a low price. Our low prices make up for the amount of gas used to make the trip. Our friendly and knowledgeable employees are dedicated to gardening and love answering any and all questions you have. You won't forget your first time here!

A: Yes. Well behaved, leashed pets are allowed in the greenhouse.



A: We are open year round, with hours varying by season. Check our website or social media for current greenhouse hours. We are closed every Sunday.

A: God has graciously given the owners and their families a saving faith in Jesus Christ. He has blessed us with the gift of churches where our faith can be strengthened through the preaching of His Word. Therefore, on Sunday we are resting from our labors and praising God in His house. We close on Sundays to also give our employees the opportunity to rest from work and attend church if they choose to do so.

A: We do have our own fleet of trucks that we use to make deliveries to the surrounding area. We typically deliver within 60 miles of our greenhouse. There is a flat fee involved based on location. You can find that fee under the More tab of our website.



A: We begin planting seeds and sticking cuttings in late December and early January. That generally continues into April. April through June we are busy with retail and wholesale plant sales. Mid July through September we pick our vegetables from the fields. We sell them in our own produce stand on site and also ship out truckloads of sweet corn to various grocery stores. During this time we are also planting fall mums from small plugs. Mum sales begin in August and we sell mums through early October. We sell from our retail store as well as to various local grocery stores, landscapers, garden centers, and fundraisers.

In November and December, we focus on Christmas. We grow poinsettias and design winterporch pots for outdoor decorating. We also offer gift cards, which make a great gift for gardeners and new homeowners.

A: Sunrise Greenhouse sells both retail and wholesale. Our current wholesale customers include landscapers, greenhouses, garden centers, produce stands, grocery stores, and churches. For requirements to set up a wholesale account, call us at 815-465-6310 and speak to Jeff.
