Put native plants in your landscape

Add native plants to your landscape to preserve and protect them, and to sustain the native pollinators and other wildlife that depend on them.

Our plants come primarily through our Seed Starters Groups and from plants grown and donated by members and friends.

Proceeds support the work of Rhode Island Wild Plant Society.
