Thank you to all the customers and staff who made Niche Gardens possible for 32 years.

This website will remain up for informational purposes, but the shopping cart has been disabled.


Everyone loves the beautiful catalog cover paintings that Elizabeth Ellison does for us every year. Check out the Art page to see some of Elizabeths past cover paintings.

Our experienced staff can offer you assistance with the design and care of your garden. We have a great collection of plants available to make your gardens unique. We are always looking for vigorous new selections and cultivars, overlooked natives which deserve a place in the garden, as well as keeping our favorite plants available for you to introduce into your gardens.

All of our plants are nursery propagated, never dug from the wild.

News: See what's happening at Niche, check out what's blooming now, and what events are in store.

Browse our inventory to get a complete view of what we have to offer. Browse by botanical name, common name or selected categories of plants.

Search for a particular plant by botanical name, common name, or by keyword such as perennial, vine, tree, shrub, ground cover, fern, grass, butterflies, birds, cut flowers, dried flowers, evergreen, fragrant, or native.

Catalog: At your request, we'll send you a copy of our printed catalog. Active customers will continue to receive updated catalogs. Currently, we are only producing a spring catalog, but look for fall or special event mailings at other times during the year.

Gift Certificates: Give something special to someone special. Niche Gift Certificates are perfect for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, and housewarmings. If you're giving flowers, why not give perennial flowers!

Design: Garden design and consultation services are no longer available.

In Our Gardens: Our site is a work in progress. We will be posting new photos and information about theme gardens, special garden topics and problems, and visiting local gardens.

Visiting Niche: Niche Gardens is located in the piedmont region of North Carolina, about eight miles west of Chapel Hill. We are located in the southwestern section of Orange County, an area of gently rolling land dotted with dairy farms. More specifically, we are located at 35 55' north latitude and 79 06' west longitude. We're pleased that we've greatly expanded our hours to welcome the public to the nursery and gardens.
