Meet Graziano Gardens

After a decade of landscape design and maintenance work, Graziano Gardens opened a unique destination garden center south of Waupaca, WI.

Today, Shelly Christie and her team focus on growing a wide variety of healthy plants, sharing design tips, educating about deer resistant varieties, pointing out best performing plant combinations and having plenty of wild flowers for our flying friends. Hundreds of daylily cultivars from renowned breeder, Darrel Apps are also grown and available at the nursery.
