Native Plant Sources

MNPS is providing this list only for the convenience of those who wish to purchase native plants. It is based primarily on information received from the vendors, and therefore is not intended as an endorsement or recommendation of any of the vendors listed. Some vendors sell non-native plants in addition to the native plants they carry. We recommend that you contact the vendors for additional information about their products.

Many vendors responded to a questionnaire sent by MNPS Nursery Committee members seeking information about whether they carry local and/or regional ecotypes (plants whose individual heritage is known to be from a specific local or a specific, somewhat broader region. Based on those responses, additional information is included with some nurseries indicating:

++ local ecovars are available
+++ regional ecovars are available

* Vendors marked with an asterisk are members of the Maryland Native Plant Society.

If you wish to be listed or if your information has changed, please contact the nursery list committee at nurserylist @
