About Us


Our Company

Sunshine Tropical Foliage has been in the tropical plant business for over 30 years. Don and Suzanne Broyles started in Monkton, Maryland with a wholesale and retail plant shop. The business moved to Homestead, Florida in 1980 where it evolved into a wholesale nursery growing tropical foliage to ship around the country.  The nursery operates on 20 acres which include stockfields, shadehouses and climate controlled greenhouses. We grow all our own marginata stock and discovered and patented the new Dracaena ‘Tarzan’ which has become the “King of the Marginata”. We go a step beyond the ordinary by offering tropical plants that stand out as artistic statements that create the perfect setting for enhancing any indoor environment. Our tropical foliage varieties include proven performers with emphasis on shelf life for maximum profitability for our customers. Plants are grown in top quality custom blended soil mixes. The fertilizer is removed before shipping the plants to ensure there will not be any soluble salt buildup once the plant is transferred inside. All plants are hand selected according to each customer’s specifications. Our reputation in the nursery business is unsurpassed by adhering to our goal, which is to always have a satisfied customer. Today, a background in horticulture and sales is not enough. It takes technology, design, planning, performance and a whole lot of love for the business to attract and keep the kind of clients for which STF is famous. We are so proud of our products and our clients and what they do with our plants that we just have to say plants are our business, our only business. The wonderful part of all this is that Sunshine products offer an excellent value at the same time. In 1999 we received the prestigious Grower of the Year award from the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association.
