Mark and his team have been growing top quality exotics for years. Excelsa is a family business and it shows; everyone is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

Pricing is a little above average but you really get what you pay for. During the many years I have bought plants here for many projects and installations in the Wellington and Palm Beach area and never had an issue.

If you are looking for top quality or just that exotic plant that is hard to find, this is the place!

Recently I was on a trip to visit nurseries and gardens in southeast Florida. One nursery that was often recommended to me was Excelsa Gardens, and I am glad it was! Trying to find a good selection of shade plants and unusual plants can be difficult, yet Excelsa has a great selection. For instance, they have the largest selection of ground orchids (Spathoglottis) I have seen. They even have a whole greenhouse of Cordylines! Wandering around their nursery I saw Alocasias, Calatheas, Colocasias, gingers, Mussaendas, Medinilla and so many more sun and shade plants. All the staff that I met were friendly and helpful. Oh yes, the plants looked great for August in Florida! I can't wait to go back next time I visit the West Palm Beach area.

I know bromeliads well because I have a garden with loads of them. Most of them are not sun tolerant and I needed some with low water needs that like the sun. This spot gets 3.5 hours of sun a day, not even lots of time.

Excelsa is a super chichi exquisitely landscaped place with very high prices. They cater to the estates in the area and Wellington. I made my needs perfectly clear: direct me to your sun loving bromeliads were the words out of my mouth. They had loadsss of bromeliads but only a few for the sun. I was delighted and bought 6 plants for $84.00, a lot of money for me.

I put them in the groundand the next day they all had white bleached spots on them, some rather large on darker plants. Victoria my sales person said we always tell our customers to transition the plant from shade to sun. Yes they were under a roof and I should have figured that out actually, but she DID not tell me that. I told her on the phone that my time is limited in Lake Worth, I am 25 miles away and then the plants were all in the ground. They just couldn't understand what went wrong, the implication being that I did something.
They offered no amends, and when I pressed it they said they would deliver via an employee who lived here a blue glow agave plant which I noticed cost $40 at Excelsa. It was a 6" container , 4" plant, a baby, a sad reconciliation. Even Home Depot guarantees their plants.

Excelsa has one of the most fantastic selection of plants I've ever seen but their customer service is wanting. l'm not convinced these plants will adjust at all. And they won't look healthy or normal for a few months. AvL

I have made a few purchases at Excelsa Gardens. I find their plants to be mediocre quality at a very high price. Most of their plants I have tried have not survived transplanting into the ground.
