Star is convenient and a reliable source for moderate-water use plants and pottery. They do carry some drought-tolerant plants but not nearly enough native stuff for my taste.
Moon Sun Cactus & Koi have interesting cacti and succulents but sometimes their stock looks a bit sad. They do host shows in the spring and fall, which can make for a fun field trip if you’re into weird plants.
Honestly, this is my least favorite local nursery and not just because I used to work for their biggest competitor here. Walking into a couple of their stores feels a little like walking into a used car lot. The old Plant World location on Charleston is pretty much the only one I go to for this reason. Talk to Sal if you go there. He’s a nice man.
If you haven’t made it into Cactus Joe’s, I wholly encourage you to make a trip out there. It’s not just a good source for cacti and succulents. They also have large pottery and garden art, from polished glass to metal sculptures.
(seasonal hours vary, be sure to call ahead)
This is a true blue mom-and-pop nursery that’s been around for decades. It’s a good place for water plants obviously, but they also carry koi, turtles and some garden statuary. They also used to have a little farmer’s market situation there on the weekends during some seasons. Definitely call ahead to make sure they’re open though.
