Our Plants

The plants we grow are native Michigan species from Michigan sources. We grow most of our plants from local, wild collected seed. This not only helps preserve regional genetic diversity, but results in plants well-suited to the climate and soils of Michigan. We grow a wide selection of native perennials for a variety of habitats; from wet to dry, sun to shade.
*please note: Native Plant Nursery does not ship plant material. orders can be picked up at the Ann Arbor Farmer's Market or at the nursery by appointment.
