Sunrise started in 1972 with $1500 cash, $500 down on a step van, some inventory, and an 8×10 lean-to greenhouse. After a few years hauling clay pots out of Mexico, we started bringing in cacti and succulents from Texas. Within two years, that’s all we sold. We’d continue to do just that for the next fifteen years. Eventually we leased greenhouses on Airline Highway, expanded our operations, and settled in on property on 3rd Street.
Nowadays, we’re on two acres of land with ten greenhouses in production. Although our landscaping division is the central facet of our business, our passion remains cacti and succulents, of which we continue to maintain one of the largest inventories in the south.
