Our Plants

All the plants that we grow are native Michigan species from Michigan sources. We grow most of our plants from local, wild collected seed. This process ensures that our plant material preserves regional genetic diversity and is best suited for the climate and soil conditions of Southeastern Michigan. We grow a wide selection of native species for a variety of habitats; from wet to dry, sun to shade.
