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.
