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.
We also sell our seeds at $3.00 a pack. (List available on request.)
*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!
Visitors are welcomed to tour the 2 1/2 acres of display gardens, and our propagation beds in the woods.
Many of our customers find it very helpful to see the plants at maturity, and in combinations with other natives.
(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 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.
Gardeners also benefit by planting natives, as 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!
If you'd like to create a native garden, be it a Butterfly Garden, Hummingbird Garden or Backyard Habitat Garden....we would be happy to design the garden for you, at no cost, if you are using our plants.
We don't do installations, but we are proud to now be working with
