Suncrest and Meadowland Nurseries
Suncrest Nurseries was founded in 1989 with the purchase of Leonard Coates Nurseries by Stan Iversen and a group of investors from the agricultural industry. Leonard Coates was a hundred-year-old nursery legendary for its work with California native plants, work that has been enthusiastically preserved and enhanced. In late 1991, Suncrest purchased Wintergreen Nursery. Wintergreen was a small, diverse operation devoted to new and unusual plants, including original native plant selections and flowering shrubs, perennials and bulbs from around the world.
