Waterwise Botanicals vision of its founders is always evolving as they keep a strong pulse on the needs of our rapidly changing landscape paradigm, bringing excitement to the public and industry with a unique and beautiful plant palette.
As both a nursery and grower, our 20+ acre facility includes educational display gardens (constantly being changed and up-dated), ponds and pathways, plus fields of flowers and foliage in growing-grounds and containers. We are dedicated to bringing you inspiration, education, and meeting your landscaping needs. We are always happy to answer your questions . You will find signage and photos with descriptions throughout the nursery to assist you in your choices.
Our location is hidden in the rolling hills of north Escondido. We hope you will find your visit an enjoyable “escape to the country” with beautiful vistas and the perfect place to explore ideas, as you stroll through countless varieties of roses, the exotic world of succulents and cacti, eye-popping perennials, graceful ornamental grasses, and unusual shrubs and trees. We are one of the largest suppliers of landscape roses, cacti, and succulents in southern California and delight in bringing you new and introduced varieties of plant materials as well. Many of our visitors enjoy seeing the Golden Barrels, and combination of succulent colors, like pieces of a quilt on our hillside.
Keep in mind we are a working nursery and part of the “experience” will include mounds of steaming mulch, orange tractors, field workers watering, planting, pulling orders and loading delivery trucks. Your visit will feel like a field trip! You are invited to bring your cameras, comfortable walking shoes, your coffee or lunch, kids, and dogs (on leash). Our roads can be muddy or wet at times and uneven from use. You are welcome to sniff and pinch, and enjoy the natural surroundings, including birds, butterflies, lizards, pollywogs (in season), fish and fresh air.
We are excited about what we do here at Waterwise Botanicals and we hope that excitement is contagious. Should you become inspired and need some help, we have our very own design team, dedicated to helping you achieve beautiful, economical, and sustainable landscapes using our Waterwise Without the Compromise system.
Tours are available upon request and subject to availability.
