The nursery also supplies our preserves and restoration projects.

Check out our Fall 2021 Native Plant Inventory to view
a complete list of all of the plants, shrubs, and trees, Oh My!

Fall is a great time to plant shrubs and trees because it gives them an extra growing season to establish their root system ahead of the stress of summer heat.

Available trees and shrubs include oaks, ironwood, delicious local fruiting trees including pawpaw, serviceberry, beach plum; as well as buttonbush, red buckeye, spicebush (earliest spring flowerlets and home of spicebush swallowtail butterfly), witch hazel (which blooms in winter), dogwood and bayberry. Among our native flowers are blue flag iris, mountain mint, goldenrod (this important pollinator plant bears heavy pollen, which falls to the ground, does not travel by air, does not generate allergies), subtle foxglove beardtongue, towering Joe Pye weed and the exquisite blue lobelia.
