Shopping for Native Plants

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

Our list of Native Plant Sources, lists nurseries and other plant vendors that have indicated that they sell plants native to our region.

We have a Shopper's Protest Card you can 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, or to inform them that certain plants are invasive.
