Welcome to Waltzing Matilija

Welcome plant friends, my name is Troy and I'm the owner and grower at Waltzing Matilija Nursery. Gondwanan goodies born and raised in Sunny California.

Have you had a hard time sourcing rare and unusual plants from Australia and South Africa? Me too. I began importing seed and growing plants to solve that problem only to unearth another problem... I enjoyed it too much.  So naturally I started a nursery to share the bounty and it has evolved to a point where I can offer a solid range of healthy plants to folks well beyond my local area.


Feel free to digitally browse the benches and reach out with any questions. I LOVE to talk plants.


Thanks for visiting.
