Native Plant Nurseries

This listing is provided for those who wish to buy NC native plants from NC nurseries. Nurseries on our list only sell nursery propagated plants and do not sell any plants listed as Rank 1 on our list of NC invasive exotic plants. Rank 1 plants are those that present the most severe threat to native ecosystems. We take a nursery’s word on compliance with our requirements and have not visited each one for verification.

 

The websites of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and the North Carolina Botanical Garden contain additional lists of native plant nurseries.

 

If you are a nursery interested in being listed, please fill out our Nursery Acceptance Form, and we will get in touch with you.
