Where to Buy Native Plants

Chapter Plant Sales

Most local CNPS Chapters host native plant sales at various times throughout the year where they sell native plants that can be incorporated into your home landscapes. In addition, your local chapter will be able to provide regional growing and resource information and address gardening issues specific to where you live. To contact your local chapter, access our State location map and click on the area where you live.

Native Plant Nurseries

These nurseries are primarily either retail or retail and wholesale, a few are wholesale only. Most are in Northern California, except for mail order sources and a few outstanding nurseries. They sell primarily native plants or seeds, except where noted. Many of these sources also provide consultation services. Call for hours and dates open. In addition to these sources, many local retail nurseries carry a selection of native California plants.
