The Petal Heads

Dave and Annilese Doolittle launched Petal Heads™ in the summer of 2008 with the vision of offering unique plants, both Annual and Perennial, to other plant enthusiasts. They wanted to create a nursery that was a destination for some of the most sought after plants, as well as a location where fellow Petal Heads™ could experience the intimacy of hearing the "story behind the plants." To this day Dave and Annilese still share this eagerness to have their customers go home with plants they can connect with.

Combined they have over 25 years of Horticultural education and work experience. Dave spent 14 years of his career working for 2 of the nation's premier breeders and propagators specializing in Annuals, Perennials, Succulents, Flowering Shrubs, and Ornamental Grasses. During this time he was able to travel the world in search of cultivars that are not typically found in garden centers, and befriended a network of breeders that hybridize the finest genetics in the horticulture industry. Annilese has collected plants since her adolescence, has a degree in horticulture from the University of Illinois, and has worked in the industry for several years. She has a keen eye for cool plants and enjoys predicting trends and profitable plant ventures. 

Just like trends change in fashion over the seasons, so do the trends in horticulture.  Whether it is a new color breakthrough, an increased resistance to insects, or an entirely new hybrid creation, plants continuously evolve as avid gardeners seek the latest and greatest hot items. (Not to mention the tried and true varieties that have resulted in successful gardening for generations.) Petal Heads™ acknowledges this passion and it is their goal to offer these cultivars to other plant enthusiasts. 

Happy gardening, 

Dave and Annilese Doolittle – The Petal Heads™
