From Our Website

There is no sensation quite like the fragrant scent of fresh flowers or the feeling of cool dirt between your fingers. There is no emotion quite like the overwhelming joy one feels when they receive the gift of a colorful floral bouquet, or when one proudly displays the rewards of a bountiful garden harvest. We call it the Countryside feeling, and we've been sharing this feeling for 60 years.


Our staff of 90 are among the most knowledgeable in the business. Many have over 10 years of experience and have distinctions including Illinois Certified Nursery Professionals, Illinois Certified Professional Florists, and more. Countryside was created in 1959, when Bill and Katherine Hameder made a business of sharing their knowledge of, love and compassion for flowers, shrubs and trees with many local patrons. The present owners, Richard Harms and James Riedl, purchased Countryside in 1973 and have expanded the nursery to 28 acres.


Now is the time to think about spring! If you spent some time outdoors this year, did you notice where you might like a shade tree, foundation planting or privacy hedge? Our nursery staff is here to help you choose the right plants for your outdoor living space. Peruse our catalog for a listing of the trees, shrubs, evergreens, flowering and fruit trees that we will be carrying this year. Or search our Plant Finder for attributes you are looking for, see pictures of the plants and create a wish list to bring with you this Spring!
