Business Overview

Our Story

Devil Mountain Wholesale Nursery was established in 1995 as a wholesale brokerage in San Ramon, CA. Driven to overcome the limited plant palettes available to architects, designers, and landscape contractors, our founder set out to find and procure whatever plants necessary to meet any-and-all design specifications.

From the beginning, our company has been relentlessly dedicated to delivering what you need, when you need it, at the best quality available. That’s why Devil Mountain has more varieties of plant material on the ground than any other wholesale nursery in Northern California. To help ensure the variety and quality our customers deserve, we opened our growing ground in 2006 in Clements, CA. In 2017, we opened our Petaluma store to better serve the North Bay. And in 2018, we opened a fourth location in Morgan Hill for our customers in San Jose, the South Bay, and the Monterey Peninsula.
