Native Azaleas • Ferns • Woodlands

Welcome to our nursery!  We are located in a green valley surrounded by the Blue Ridge and Black Mountains.  Our plant list consists of native azaleas, ferns, and other shade loving plants. North American native azaleas are deciduous and are often called wild azaleas or honeysuckle by the locals. 

Shipping for the 2021 Fall season begins in September.


Mountain Mist Nursery grows a wide variety of native deciduous azaleas and selections, with a few favorite hybrids thrown in.



While Mountain Mist Nursery grows a nice variety of woodland plants, we are starting out on this website with our most popular, trilliums. Soon, you'll see other beautiful native specimens.



What would the forests be without delicate, primordial ferns?

Lose The Trail

Mountain Mist Nursery is a family affair. Our daughter and her husband, Molly and Jason Dockery operate Lose The Trail Photography. They have a gallery at the Kress Emporium in downtown Asheville. Please check them out! Molly visits our nursery and photographs our plants throughout the growing season. We are adding LTT images to our product pages. Our lead banner is theirs. Beautiful!
