Our Company

AWG opened in 1982 and now operates on more than 100 acres in North Phoenix and Camp Verde. As a wholesale grower, we sell to landscapers, wholesale and retail nurseries, resorts and golf courses, as well as municipalities and developers. We grow plants sized from 2″ liners to 48″ box trees, in a range of varieties designed to create and landscape from start to finish in a multitude of design styles. Although we have the largest selection of cacti and succulents in the valley in various sizes, we also grow ornamental shrubs and trees to supply any residential or commercial project. Our superior hybrid Palo Verdes, the Sonoran Emerald, the Palo Rojo, and our new hybrid mesquite, the Crown Jewel have proven to be very popular with low maintenance and will enhance any landscape.
