Our grandfather built American Plant treating his customers like they were guests in his own home.

For 95 years, American Plant has served as a popular garden center for the D.C. area, offering organic, earth-friendly gardening solutions
as well as a strong family legacy of quality service and personal attention. 


"Our grandfather built American Plant treating his customers like they were guests in his own home," says Brett Shorb, who co-owns the company with brothers Erik and Todd. "We're the third generation, and now that's second nature to all of us." With two Bethesda locations,
a Landscape/Design/Build/Maintain division and a Lifestyle Boutique—Tinge, which offers home décor, furniture, accessories, candles, jewelry, and beauty products—American Plant has evolved into more than a Garden Center. While maintaining the company’s core values, Brett,
Erik and Todd continue to expand the business and provide customers with something fresh each year. “We are a one stop shopping destination with a wide selection of garden supplies, annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs,” says Brett. “Tinge is the perfect gift destination
and our greenhouses have exquisite orchids, houseplants and creative custom arrangements.”


American Plant’s knowledgeable and experienced in-house Landscape Design | Build | Maintain team works with customers looking to
transform—or custom-create—outdoor spaces, turning visions into reality. In addition to selling the most beautiful flowers, plants, trees and shrubs, the Shorbs are committed to providing environmentally friendly gardening solutions—they’ve been at the forefront of the industry’s environmental movement since taking the lead in 2000.

"A trip to American Plant should be an experience, not just an errand you have to run,” says Brett. “Our locations offer a piece of tranquility
and excitement all wrapped up in one visit!”
