Wine isn’t the only thing to be found on the Oklahoma Wine Trails. Woodland Park Vineyards in Stillwater has a succulent shop just off the tasting room!
I stopped by recently and couldn’t help but pick up a plant from the greenhouse. What can I say, I’m a “succ”-er for succulents!
Jeanette Hane owns and operates both Woodland Park Vineyards and Stillwater Succulents with help from her family.
“It’s a family affair,” Jeanette said.
They planted the first vines on the property in 2000, and the winery opened for business in 2005. Since then, they have expanded to grow eight different varieties of grapes. All Woodland Park wines only use the grapes grown at the vineyards.
Jeanette and family also have a pecan orchard, grow gourds, host weddings and, of course, sell succulents.
Jeanette said she had been collecting succulents for years, but she ramped up and began selling succulents when they became more popular.
“People are entranced with succulents,” she said.
She sells dozens of varieties of succulents, but specializes in growing aloe, gasteria and gasteraloe plants. Some of the plants have fun names like “Brass Hat,” “Pickled Pink,” “Minnie Belle” and “Little Poker.”
When available, Jeanette sells her cleaned, dyed gourds as planters. Some are small enough for tiny plants, and others are large enough for a large succulent arrangement!
