Shooting Star Nursery
Owners Christie and Scott Mackison started Shooting Star Nursery in 2005, with the vision of supplying a wide range of plants, personal service, and reasonable prices to customers in the Rogue Valley. Shooting Star offers a broad selection of trees and hard-to-find perennials and shrubs (to satisfy the plant nerd inside us), as well as the more common landscape plants. We grow many of our trees in rootmaker bags which create a superior root system and can be dug most of the year. Spreading over eight acres, plants are easily accessible for viewing, and knowledgeable staff are available to walk the grounds and assist customers with plant selection. In fact, we love nothing more than talking about plants and helping customers discover just what they are looking for!
Delivery is available - from one tree to an entire trailer load.
Shooting Star Nursery is located at 3223 Taylor Road, Central Point, OR 97502. Get directions...
