Tory Galloway started Piriformis in 1998 specializing in drought tolerant plants. It has been a nursery ever since and has seen four names and 5 owners. The new owner continues on with the name Urban Earth and picks up where the previous owner, Susan, left off. The nursery historically provides a diversity of drought tolerant plants, unusual plants, and plants that do well in our climate and are appropriate sizes for urban gardens.
