Color Spot Nurseries is firmly rooted in Western soil. As one of the US's leading wholesale nurseries, Color Spot produces more than 1,000 types of plants, including bedding plants, shrubs, potted plants, ground cover, and Christmas trees. Color Spot supplies more than 2,000 retailers and commercial customers, including CVS, Lowe's, The Home Depot, and Wal-Mart. Its customers are primarily located in the western and southwestern US. The company operates about 10 production facilities split between California and Texas. Color Spot Nurseries was founded in 1983 by CEO Michael Vukelich.
To strengthen its growing operations, the company in late 2009 acquired El Modeno Gardens, which has four growing grounds in California. The purchase is expected to boost Color Spot's market share of perennials and flowering shrubs, especially in the western US. – less
