Our selection

We offer one of the largest native plant selections in the Metro area, with over 5000 sq. ft of retail space in 2 greenhouses dedicated just to native plants!  Here you'll find host plants, nectar sources, and trees grown from locally harvested seed. Native plants are the best choice for bringing healthy ecological function back into your landscape. Unlike many annuals, they perform well in those tough suburban clay soils. They also will attract a colorful and diverse variety of wildlife to your yard. Many hummingbirds,  monarchs, and beneficial insects rely on natives for their survival - so why not help them out!
