We got our start in the early 1950s when Frank Frisella began growing and selling trees as a hobby; experimenting with which plants thrived in the St. Louis climate. His passion for unique and extraordinarily beautiful plants became the foundation of Frisella Nursery. Soon, the
superior quality landscapes they created began to catch on.
Thanks to our loyal customers and their enthusiasm for sharing our work, our humble plant nursery has evolved beyond the late Frank Frisella’s wildest dreams. Now headquartered in Defiance, Missouri, Frisella Nursery is the area’s largest garden center and an award-winning, full-service landscape design and build company.
Our Mission is to inspire a greater connection to ourselves, to our families, and to the earth.
