Native Wildflower Seeds & Plants

Native plants adapt to the local climate and soil conditions where they naturally occur. They provide nectar, pollen, and seeds that serve as a food source for native butterflies, insects, birds and other wildlife.  In comparison, common horticultural plants do not provide energetic rewards for their visitors and often require insect pest control to survive.

We offer a full selection of native wildflower prairie plants and seeds in addition to design consultation and soil amendments.   Why Plant Plugs?  PLEASE CALL FOR PRICING & AVAILABILITY ON PLANT PLUGS.
