While we pride ourselves on knowing as much as we can about native plants for gardeners, landscapers, botanists and the general public - there are some great resources out there that can help you on your next trip to the gardens or the great outdoors.

The Gardens

If you've found a website about plants, native flora and fauna communities, that you use again and again, please tell us about it!

We have compiled a partial list of area nurseries that sell native plants.

Native Plant Information

PLANTS Database

The USDA's P.L.A.N.T.S. database and website is extremely informative and provides details on plants growing in nearly any area of the US. Many plant records have descriptions, photos, county-level maps noting where plants may be found plus book references.
