We are celebrating being in business for 35 years in 2015.  Raymond Laclergue started the nursery in 1980 behind the fence in back.  Intermountain Nursery has operated in the Central California Sierra foothills since then when Ray purchased a small bedding plant nursery in Prather, California. Operating on about 5 acres, the nursery has evolved through the years to become the principle grower of California Native Plants in the Central Valley area. There are over twelve demonstration gardens on the grounds with a self guided tour highlighting native plants and other drought tolerant plants which are appropriate for growing in a Mediterranean climate. Nursery staff grows all our own bedding plants and container stock except some shade and fruit trees. We are committed to providing plants that are grown in a sustainable way without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Located along Little Sandy and Big Sandy Creeks at 1700' elevation, the site has deep alluvial soils and cool night temperatures that provide a perfect location to grow plants that will become established at various locations, from the Valley floor to 10,000 ft. elevation.

We are located 30 miles Northeast of Fresno, California on State Highway #168 on the way to Shaver and Huntington Lakes. Check out the map on this website for directions from your location, or call at 559-855-3113 during operating hours listed below.

 We are open seven days a week except between Christmas & New Years, Easter Sunday, 4th of July & Thanksgiving.  

Summer Hours are 8am - 5pm Mon - Sat, 10am - 4pm. Sunday
