Plant Sources for Native Plants
Some things to remember when searching for native plants:
- Do NOT dig from the wild. Wild plants are often difficult to transplant and wild collecting depletes an already stressed resource.
- Buy from a reputable source and buy only nursery propagated plants.
- Use straight species when possible. This will help continue the genetic diversity.
Please also note that some of the nurseries listed below have open houses and plant sales that are sponsored by conservation organizations. These sales are excellent places to acquire natives.
