Meet Botanicus

About Us

Botanicus, Inc. is an eco-friendly interior landscaping company with over 40 years’ experience in the live plant care industry. Botanicus’ founders pioneered systems for growing, shipping, and acclimatization techniques of tropical foliage plants. We provide a wide range of landscaping services from custom designing interior gardens to meeting all your holiday decorating needs throughout Western New York.

Botanicus Plant Parlour

In 1971, Botanicus opened its doors as the Plant Parlour on Main Street in Buffalo. The first plants-only retail store in Western New York, we sold bonsai, grafted cactus, succulents and small plants. By 1974, the company boasted three retail stores, a glass greenhouse in Lockport, New York, and a 28 acre nursery in Bonita Springs, Florida. In the mid-1970’s, Botanicus began offering commercial plant services to businesses in the Buffalo market, expanding into Rochester in the early 80’s. By 1986, operations were consolidated in order to concentrate exclusively on business customers in the Buffalo and Rochester metro areas.

In 2014 Botanicus created their e-commerce site, offers an eco-friendly designer collection of stylish planters, pots and container accessories. Our 30-plus custom colors and finishes are UV resistant for indoors, lobbies, gardens and patios.

Botanicus’ extensive experience growing and installing plants, our cutting-edge horticultural techniques, and personalized service enable us to design exquisite interior landscapes. Our highly trained technicians with combined experience of 160 years are always available to service many clients in the Western New York area.
