Our Business

The Company

Island Tropical Foliage is a 35 acre nursery located in Homestead, Florida. We specialize in exporting plants, trees and landscaping supplies to the Caribbean, servicing a broad variety of customers. We carry a full selection of nursery supplies, and consolidate each shipment in an efficient fashion, so that freight costs are minimized, and your order is delivered in a smooth, timely manner. We will communicate with you throughout the order processing process, so that there are no surprises!

Export Services

  • Our customers count on us to not only supply high quality plants and trees which we grow, but to locate and source any additional plants or supplies that are needed to complete your project.
  • We consolidate all grown and brokered plants, trees, and supplies into one shipment. This simplifies the process for you, with only one phyto and one invoice per project.
  • Onsite analysis and recommendations with regard to irrigation, water quality, soil quality, and other critical issues is available.
  • We ship every island in the Caribbean, including Grand Cayman. When it comes to exporting, pre shipping preparation of each plant or tree, and the required paperwork, is essential. Our vast expertise in the region allows us to prepare your shipment meeting the required guidelines and restrictions.
