ALTHOUGH WE ARE WHOLESALE, COURTESIES ARE EXTENDED TO ALL ARS MEMBERS

Van Veen Nursery is a specialty wholesale nursery established in 1926 by Theodore Van Veen Sr.  It is known worldwide for the outstanding quality of its rhododendrons and azaleas.  Ted Van Veen Jr. took over the nursery in 1961 and wrote the book in rhododendrons with his "Rhododendrons in America".  More recently he authored "Rhododendrons You Should Meet".  This is a description of over 500 varieties of rhododendron grown here at the nursery.  Kathy Van Veen is the nursery's 3rd generation.  She is an expert in propagation.

ROOTED CUTTINGS
All Van Veen rhododendrons are cutting grown.  They have large vigorous root balls because they are grown in open benches rather than in pots.

YEARLINGS
Yearlings (also known as liners) are small plants with vigorous roots, guaranteeing a good start to a finished plant.

CUSTOM PROPAGATION
Tired of doing your own propagation?  Have a hard-to-root variety?  Or a special rhododendron you would like to start?  Send the cutting to us and we will do the rooting for you.

PRICE LISTS
Our prices list is detailed and informative, featuring over 500 rhododendron hybrids, as well as species and azaleas.  Please visit our website at www.vanveennursery.
