About Altman Plants
KEN & DEENA ALTMAN BEGAN THEIR PLANT COLLECTION IN 1975 IN THEIR LOS ANGELES BACKYARD
What started out as an innocent hobby, based on an avid interest in plants, slowly transformed itself into a wholesale nursery business encompassing over 1700 acres in six states. The business began with a plant catalog of unusual succulents.
Later, the Altmans would take their overflow plant material and sell it to local retail nurseries. The retailers loved the unusual and varied plant material and so did their customers. Altman Plants became more and more important to these retailers because of their quality plants and innovative products.
