The Bailey Difference

Throughout our long history, Bailey Nurseries has earned a reputation as a leader in the nursery industry with inventive techniques, high-quality plants and active involvement in industry organizations. Integrity, innovation and quality were the hallmarks of our company when it began - and they continue to this day.

Bailey Nurseries offers a complete line of nursery stock that includes deciduous trees and shrubs, evergreens, fruits, perennials, annuals and roses. Our plants are offered from seedlings and rooted cuttings to finished bareroot and container-grown stock. The attention our plants receive throughout their growth results in some of the finest plants available anywhere.

Our employees are like family, too

We could never have accomplished everything we have in the last hundred plus years without the dedication and just plain hard work of the people who work with us. During our peak periods in spring and summer we employ over 400 full-time and 1,200 seasonal employees at our facilities across the country. We take great pride in our employees and they reciprocate with amazing pride in their work. So not surprisingly, many of our employees have been with us for 20 years and longer. We consider our employees and their families part of the Bailey family.

Good breeding always shows

Our efforts in breeding and working with breeders from around the world are directed at marked improvements for the consumer, from size, shape and form, to flower color, fragrance and disease resistance. With these lofty goals in mind, today we have introduced well over 200 varieties of new plants. We are constantly looking for and testing the best the world has to offer, searching for improved habit, ornamental qualities and four season interest. Today these new plants can be found in one of our three plant brands, Endless Summer® Collection Hydrangeas, Easy Elegance® Roses or First Editions® new plants.

Brilliant color, intelligent ideas

When it comes to quality and innovation, Endless Summer continues to set the standard for the entire garden world. This remarkable collection continues to grow with the introduction of Twist-n-Shout™, our first reblooming lacecap hydrangea, showcasing the same reblooming qualities that made The Original the most successful new plant launch in the history of the garden industry. Next is the Easy Elegance Rose Collection which continues to turn heads with beautiful, hardy and easy-to-grow roses. It's just that simple with Easy Elegance. The First Editions new plant collection rounds out our new plant offering with a remarkable collection of exciting new Bailey Nurseries introductions, exclusive to garden centers for two years.
