Welcome to Painters Greenhouse

For 49 years our family business has supplied our loyal retail customers with high quality plants. Painters has been described as a hidden gem, located just off the beaten path in Old Fort, NC.  We have one of the largest inventories in WNC with a focus on native and pollinator plants, an extensive selection of perennials, and mature and unique houseplants!

Plants provide joy and wellness, support wildlife, and foster social connections as well as those with the environment -  that's why we encourage everyone to add a little green to their life!  Our team is more than happy to help with plant selection and general advice - we're here to help your plants thrive!
