RI Native Plant Guide

Find the right plant for your landscape!

Rhode Island Native Plant Guide represents a subset of 1,300 species listed in 1998 edition of Vascular Flora of Rhode Island, selected for their ornamental value, potential in restoration projects and ease of propagation.

Search on a plant type and plant characteristics.  Find where these plants are sold.

This simple online tool reflects three years of research and development by the URI Outreach Center, Rhode Island Natural History Survey and a team of reviewers including professionals in the horticulture industry, URI faculty and staff, landscape ecologists, propagators and botanists.

Nurseries and garden centers selling plants on this list were also invited to provide this information.
