We are a small, family owned and operated, specialty nursery.
Our main focus is on North American Native Woodland Plants, as well as the Native Sun Loving/Prairie Plants.
(Also can't resist dabbling in variegates.)
Our plants are grown here by division, or seed collected from our own plants, so you can be assured that you will be bringing home a plant that has never been treated with a pesticide.
*This is VERY important. Regardless of where you end up buying your plants...PLEASE ask your salesperson how the plants have been grown! Most big box stores and garden centers are now selling plants that have been systemically treated with pesticides which will make birds sick and kill any butterfly, bee or native pollinator foolish enough to take a sip or a nibble. If the salesperson does not know how the plant was grown, walk away and find a nursery that does!
We sell our seeds at $3.00 a pack. (List available on request.)
Visitors are welcomed to tour the 2 1/2 acres of display gardens, and our propagation beds in the woods.
(A call ahead is necessary, as we do several Farmers' Markets a week, and are not always here to show you around.)

There are many moral and ethical reasons to be planting natives in your gardens,...offering a refuge for our Birds, Butterflies and Native Pollinators in an age of rapid species decline and destruction of habitat. Also benefits gardeners in that by planting natives, we can also experience some of the most interesting, tenacious, and beautiful plants mother nature has to offer, up close and personal in your own backyard!
(It also merits mention, that the natives have a strength and natural ability to withstand the crazy weather we all now have to live and garden with, while the hybrids waste away in the 40-50 degree temperature fluctuations and months of flooding followed by months of drought!)
Anyone wishing to investigate further, here is a very well written/understandable article on the importance of using Native Plants for your wildlife friendly garden. It really DOES make a big difference to our local creatures in what species of plants are available to them.....
If you'd like to create a native garden, be it a Butterfly Garden, Hummingbird Garden or Backyard Habitat Garden....
