Rhody Gem: Verde Garden Shop

March 2021


What it is:

A garden shop specializing in unique indoor plants, pots and containers, and nature-themed books, decor, and gifts.


Where to find it:

Visit the flagship store in Newport off of bustling Broadway, or a Cranston pop-up can be found in Garden City Center behind Anthropologie and across from Bistro 22.


What makes it a Rhody Gem?

A mecca of potted greenery, Verde is naturally a crazy plant lady’s dream but also ideal for anyone wanting to infuse a little ecosystem into their interior spaces. Find tiny terrariums in glass bowls, charming bonsai, and vast planters housing cascading green shoots. Opening the Newport shop in 2016, Pamela Rogers has created a retail complement to her landscape architecture and horticulture business, Verde Garden Design, and to share her passion of integrating nature into interior and exterior design. “As people are spending more time at home, our store concept is the perfect place to find something special and to bring the beauty of nature into your home,” Rogers explains. The market has since expanded to a second pop-up location in Garden City. In either shop, a crew of plant enthusiasts is happy to offer personalized styling tips to send you home with the perfect plant baby, or local delivery options are available, too.
