Chicagoland Grows


Established in 1986, Chicagoland Grows was created as a partnership among the Chicago Botanic Garden, the Morton Arboretum and the Ornamental Growers Association of Northern Illinois.  

Chicagoland Grows’ mission is to select, evaluate, produce and market new and recommended plant cultivars that have exhibited an ability to perform well under local growing conditions.

As one of the founding members, Hinsdale Nurseries has actively supported the program by propagating, growing and evaluating many of the program selections.  Our nursery presently offers almost 30 of the Chicagoland Grows introductions.
