Native Plant Sales
New Clickable Map of Native Plant Nurseries
Check out the new clickable map of native plant nurseries in and around Maryland at mdflora.org/nurseries.html
We took the list of nurseries selling native plants from the MNPS website and created a google map. This new interactive map, with pins on native plant nurseries, allows you to click on a site to get more information including the nursery’s website, contact information, and a short description. We will endeavor to keep the map up to date. However, we advise users to call nurseries in advance when planning a visit.
