Meet the Team
Clint and Laura - Owners
Laura has over 30 years of work experience in horticulture and a life-long passion for plants.
Clint is not as passionate about plants, but he is passionate about supporting Laura. He does like to fix things and there are a lot of things to fix at a nursery!
Together, they make a great team.
Brandon - Nurseryman
Brandon has several years of experience in horticulture. He has a clear passion for horticulture though self-study. He has recently earned a Master Gardner Certification. Brandon is excellent at providing advice and problem solving for customers trying to find the right plant.
Andy - Nurseryman
Andy has over 45 years of broad experience in horticulture and an undeniable passion for plants. His expertise, positive attitude and work ethic are a major asset to Azusa. We are fortunate to have him work at our nursery.
Jay has a passion for plants and experience to match. He has nursed many plants to good health at Azusa and we appreciate his knowledge and expertise. If you mention Japanese Maple trees you will see his face light up in delight as he speaks about them in depth.
Carol has many years of experience with plants and is a talented artist. We are honored to sell some of her beautiful cards in the gift shop. We appreciate her passion and dedication.
Amber - Nurserywoman
Amber has experience in landscape design and a flare for display. She is not shy about digging into a project to get just the right look and it is evident throughout Azusa. Despite initial reluctance to operate the electric carts, she has become pretty good at driving them with trailers in tow.
Mija (me-ha) - Mouser, Customer Non-relations
Mija loves people, but likes to pretend that she does not like them. It's a game. It's her game... and she wins.
Joe BOOTS - Fashionista, Socialite
He's "gone country" - look at them boots. He is a polydactyl so the boots must be custom wide toes. Clearly a neighborhood kitty with way too much time on his hands because he make the rounds and loves the night life. Of course, he's got plenty of style and personality. We call him Boots - one of the neighbors calls him Joe. Joe BOOTS.
Nacho Libre is a free range kitty that is fascinated by all that goes on at Azusa and the food that exists within it. He is free to roam, but internally he wrestles with a conflict between the wild and cool people. The closer you get to him, the more he will express the conflict that keeps him from interpersonal relationships. Free your mind, Nacho. FREEDOM!
Rocky had a rocky start and was given a new life by Rocket Rescue who then brought him to us. He loves high places, breaking things, and chatting about it all the while. Welcome home Rocky!
