About Us

Iris in Field


OUR MISSION is to find, breed and grow regionally superior plant varieties for California landscape professionals, and to assist them in choosing the best plant palette for each unique project.

With a degree in Landscape Architecture and decades of landscape design/build experience, John Schoustra founded Greenwood in order to find and grow the best daylily varieties for California. Over time the mission broadened to include other plants that “performed like daylilies.” First, irises were added, then clivias, pelargoniums and cannas. In each case, hundreds or thousands of varieties were evaluated until the few that best met the needs of California landscape professionals could be selected and propagated.

Schoustra Background/Lectures


1. Durable Performance: The plant must thrive not just in the horticultural havens of San Diego and Santa Barbara, but also in San Fernando, San Bernardino and San Jose.

2. Installation Flexibility: The plant must be able to be shipped and installed any day of the year,  be handled by installers with a broad range of skills, and survive sitting on asphalt for a week waiting to be planted.

3. Low Maintenance: It should thrive not just with care by horticulturists and native plant experts, but by landscape contractor crews and underqualified ‘garden janitors’.
