Promoting the enjoyment and conservation of North Carolina's native plants and their habitats through education, protection, cultivation and advocacy since 1951

Welcome to Native Plant News, the quarterly newsletter of the NC Native Plant Society. We celebrate North Carolina’s native plants. Our long history of publishing botanically rich articles dates back to 1951 when we were The North Carolina Wild Flower Preservation Society.
Our newsletters are all listed below and are publicly available. (Starting in the Spring of 2022, the newsletter articles are archived. Prior to that the newsletters are presented as PDFs.)
We encourage you to explore the cache of information on our entire website – our acclaimed printed publications, YouTube videos, regional activities presented by our seven statewide chapters, grants and scholarships programs, and native plant habitat Garden Certifications. Discover the joys of the beauty and benefits of North Carolina native plants.
It’s easy to join us and become a member. We welcome you.
