MNPS provides this list solely for the convenience of those who wish to purchase native plants. It is based primarily on information received from the vendors, and therefore is not intended as an endorsement or recommendation of any of the vendors listed. Some vendors sell non-native plants in addition to native plants. Please contact the vendors for additional information about their products. * Vendors marked with an asterisk are members of the Maryland Native Plant Society.If possible, purchase native plants from local growers (see native plant suppliers below). Do not dig up plants from the wild; many natives have become threatened or endangered species due to this practice. Some plants require specific soil fungi and will not survive when transplanted in your garden. Urge your local nurseries to carry true native plants.

A major reason for the loss of native plants in our landscapes is that their habitat has been taken over by non-native invasive plants. While not all non-natives are invasive (spreading aggressively with no natural controls), some species have done great harm to local ecosystems. Commonly found examples include purple loosestrife, kudzu, multiflora rose, English ivy, Tree of Heaven (Ailanthus) and Bradford Pear. Control of invasive plants can be difficult, expensive and time-consuming. If you have any non-native invasive plants in your landscape, consider removing them and replacing them with native plants.Mid Atlantic Natives is an organic practice production nursery specializing in growing plants native to the north east, Mid-Atlantic and in particular our beloved Chesapeake Bay watershed and eastern seaboard.
