Offer from our Dutch wholesale plant nursery

There are a number of young plants that are very popular with our customers. This mainly applies to conifers, deciduous shrubs, fruit plants, hydrangea, syringa and perennials. More information about these plants can be found below. Let us know if you can’t find something, and we will try to add it to our offer.


You may be wondering: what is a conifer? The conifers form a group with more than six hundred species. A conifer is both a tree and a shrub. When the conifer is cut it is a shrub without a trunk, however, if given the opportunity, the conifer can grow into a fully-fledged tree. There are many different types of conifers. The main categories consist of Thuja, Chamaecyparis and Juniperus. All types can grow into trees, if conditions permit.

We produce grafted conifers, such as Pinus, Abies and Picea. Grafting is a horticultural technique used to join parts from two or more plants so that they appear to grow as a single plant. Grafting is the fastest way of growing popular, desirable varieties of fruit and flowering shrubs on a large scale.

A common conifer species is ‘the tree of life’, also called Thuja ‘Smaragd’. This conifer is characterized by a fairly slender growth. The thuja has an elegant appearance. You can recognize this conifer by its shiny, bright green scales. When the leaves are crushed, the typical, pleasant ‘conifer scent’ is released. This conifer can withstand wind very well and, in addition to being evergreen, it is also very hardy. The Thuja grows up to 30 centimeters per year and tolerates pitches in both sunny and shady places. In our webshop you will find different types of Thuja: from the traditional Thuja ‘Smaragd’ to the bright ‘Golden Smaragd’. Our conifers come from our Dutch nursery and are in excellent condition. A solid conifer that you can enjoy for a long time!

Deciduous shrubs

Deciduous shrubs range in size, form and color and shed their leaves each fall before they go to sleep for the winter. The term ‘deciduous’ means ‘tending to fall off’. There are different types of deciduous shrubs. Popular deciduous shrub varieties include barberry, butterfly bush, and azalea.

One of our popular plants is the Deutzia Raspberry Sundae: a real beauty for the garden. Raspberry Sundae gives bright, large flowers and flowers along the whole branch. Blooms with pink-purple flowers from mid-spring to midsummer. The Deutzia Raspberry Sundae grows easily and requires little maintenance. The flowers are slightly scented and attract bees and butterflies.

In addition, our Prunus laurocerasus Sofia is exceptionally beautiful and has very nice, narrow leaves with serrated edges. It looks much more delicate (and also more exotic) than other laurels. Prunus laurocerasus Sofia PBR was awarded a golden medal at GrootGroen’s novelties competition 2019. Discover our offer.

Fruit plants

We also offer various fruit plants. Several varieties of blueberry, strawberry, currant, gooseberry, raspberry, blackberry, kiwi, mini kiwi, cranberry. We offer small and soft fruit, but also grasses. If your customers have limited space in the garden, or just a terrace or a small patio, and still dream of fresh, hand-picked fruit plants, we can offer them for instance raspberries, with our Rubus idaeus ‘Yummy’. Fruits ripe in the sun at its own pace and can satisfy the requirements of even the most sophisticated palate. Raspberry Yummy is a fairly new, miniature, tiny variety which generates fruit abundantly.

For example, you can also choose for the Pineberry ‘White Dream’, an amazing combination of pineapple and strawberry. The fruits are white with red seeds, contrary to the normal strawberries. These fruits are very aromatic, and they taste like pineapple, but the texture and feel are like strawberry we know. White Dream is a unique result of crossbreeding between the wild South American strawberry Fragaria chiloensis (which we also offer) and the North American strawberry Fragaria virginiana. Pineberry is exotic but grows like regular strawberries. White Dream has larger berries compared to other white-fruits varieties available on the market, but they are still smaller than normal, red strawberries.

Hydrangea is a popular plant for the garden. Large globes of flowers cover this shrub in the summer and spring. Although their appearance may seem high maintenance, with the right conditions and care, hydrangeas are actually fairly easy to grow. What is a hydrangea? The hydrangea is considered a shrub. With flowers starting in spring and often last throughout summer into early fall, hydrangea flowers can be the foundation plant of your landscape.

At Hoogenraad we offer various types of hydrangea, such as the Hydrangea ‘Candybelle® Marshmallow PBR’, the pink Hydrangea ‘Hot Bell’, the Hydrangea arb. ‘Candybelle® Bubblegum PBR’, Hydrangea pan. ‘Limelight’® and many many more! The varieties are boundless. View our large hydrangea offer.


A common question is: what are perennials? Perennials are plants that live more than two years. They are also described as ‘herbaceous’, meaning that their stems are not woody like those of shrubs and trees. Perennials that grow and bloom over the spring and summer, die every autumn and winter, and then often return in the spring. When grown in favorable conditions, perennials often live a long time, but don’t assume they will last forever. Their life span is variable.

At Hoogenraad we offer perennials, such as ‘Paeonia lactiflora’ a beautiful, fragrant and wonderful flowers in unique colors. They bloom from May to June, and later, thanks to strong, dark green leaves, make a beautiful background for other flowers. Peonies are quite easy to grow and are a wonderful decoration of every garden!


Syringa is a plant of the olive family (Oleaceae). It is a small tree or shrub best known for its attractive, sweetly scented flowers. The syringa is native to southeastern Europe. In gardens there are all kinds of cultivated Syringa varieties with flower colors that vary from white to dark purple. The common syringa has light green and hairless leaves in the shape of a heart. The leaves fall off in autumn and the flowering time is in April and May. Syringa plants are deciduous, the flower panicles have various colors ranging from dark purple to white.

We offer various syringa plants, such as the Syringa v. ‘Aucubaefolia’ and the Syringa meyeri ‘Flowerfesta’ ® White PBR.
