Posting Policy: Send notices of upcoming Native Plant Sales to fieldtrips @ mdflora.org, and include a link to the part of your site with more information on the sale.

Shopping for Native Plants

How to Shop for Native Plants (PDF, ~84 KB).

We have a Shopper's Protest Card you can view and download and take with you when you go plant shopping. You can give these to the nursery growers to help to enourage them to grow the native plants you want to find, or to inform them that certain plants are invasive.

We also have a list of Native Plant Sources, which lists nurseries that state that they sell native plants. They may have sales that we do not advertise.

    The Wild Plant Nursery is a unique resource for ecological restoration in the greater Washington, DC, area. Established in 2001 in Springfield, Virginia, under an agreement with the Fairfax County Park Authority, the nursery is the region's most comprehensive source of local, wild native-plant material (“local ecotypes”). The use of local ecotypes is a standard best practice in ecological restoration because that helps to safeguard genetic diversity and local adaptation in the species planted. The nursery is currently working with about 340 species, some uncommon or rare in the wild in this region. For many of these species, our nursery is the DC area’s only source of production — local ecotype or otherwise. All plants are grown from seed (or spores) that we ourselves collect, from over 50 local natural areas. (We collect only with permission.)
