Island Passions Nursery
....create your own paradise

Welcome to Island Passions Nursery!
We are still one of the islands best kept secrets for rare and unusual sub-tropical plants. 

 Tropical plants are our specialty - palm trees, lillies, cannas, passion flowers, brugmansia, bananas and bamboo. Most of our cultivars outperform plants found at other sources. 

Our primary sales are at local farm markets and specialty garden shows on Vancouver Island
  Our where to find us page for the 2018 season has been updated. Just click on the tab at the top of this page.  We update this page as new events are added a couple times each season.

We have a few rare Canadian made hybrid palm trees available for 2018. As of March 22nd we have 8 left.  They range in price from $80 to $100. They are approximately 3 feet tall.  To reserve these you just need to send us an email. These are hybrid of Trachycarpus Fortunei and Trachycarpus Wagnerianus. The fans are much more rigid so they will not get the messy fronds that the pure Trachycarpus Fortunei do. These sell out quickly every year.  We give you COMPLETE growing instructions and fertilizer to ensure your palm gets a strong start. 

Our second annual Brugmansia Bonanza event will be Saturday May 19th at the Duncan Farmers Market. The first one was a frenzy and sold almost all by 10am so make sure you arrive early.
The second event will have fewer varieties but there will be more of our favorites. 
Sorry no reservations.  

This years hottest new plants are definitely the Rose-Lilies. For years we have taken great pride on having the best show stopping lilies but these completely shocked us.  

Dont forget to check back for market and product updates.
