Why Native Plants?
Native plants offer immeasurable benefits over non-natives. By selecting plants that are native to our mid-Atlantic region, you are choosing plants that are well adapted to our climate, soil conditions and support our native pollinators.
We strive to offer the most diverse selection of native plants in the region with an extensive selection for woodlands, wetlands, riparian buffers, meadows, hedgerows, shrub borders, rain gardens, restoration and home landscapes. We gladly advise customers on plant selection. We are a retail nursery, not wholesale, but we can work with you on custom orders.
Our plants are nursery propagated, and container-grown - never wild-collected - and are available in a variety of sizes. Perennials, grasses, and ferns are available in containers ranging from plugs, quarts to 2 gallons. Trees and shrubs are available in containers from 1 to 15 gallons.
Our practices always have our shared environment in mind. We follow non-toxic management practices and care for our plants without the use of pesticides, such as neonicotinoids, or herbicides.
At the Nursery
Are you a homeowner, not sure where to begin? An avid gardener looking for that hard to find native plant?
Our kind, courteous, and knowledgeable staff will help you with plant selection based on your site conditions and planting goals. We can assist with the selection of the most appropriate native plants for your planting projects in a variety of ways. Check in by email about our availability and let us know what you are looking for. If you are preparing for your visit, knowing your sun patterns, soil conditions including typical moisture levels and dimensions of the space is helpful.
Is your organization hosting a native plant sale or a fundraiser? Or do you need specific native plants in quantity for a project installation?
Advance orders can be arranged. It may be best to do this in advance of the planting season, for instance be in touch in January for a spring planting.
In Your Garden
Gardening is part art, part science, requiring a creative partnership with nature. But that creative partnership can be equivalent to a chess game because there are so many variables and choices. Sometimes all that is needed is an experienced opinion to help you work through your next moves. Redbud's team of landscape architects, designers, and horticulture professionals can provide the expertise to help you achieve success with your garden.
In collaboration with our sister business, TEND landscape architects, we offer evaluation, coaching, and recommendations for your home landscape.
Garden Coaching is designed to support you with your gardening questions and challenges. The service includes a visit to your home landscape. During the visit, one of Redbud's landscape designers will spend a portion of the time with you observing your landscape conditions. We will spend the rest of the time answering your specific questions and providing support for your desired garden area or topic. You are encouraged to take notes or record the visit for your reference.
A well designed garden can make an ordinary home outstanding. Our Garden Design Consultations with experienced landscape designers help you assess what you already have and provide direction for creating a garden that benefits your lifestyle and brings joy to you and your family.
Are you looking to hire a Landscape Designer? We can provide landscape designs specific to your site and your goals. We can also assist with choosing the right landscape contractor, provide oversight during installation, and develop management plans for on-going maintenance. Fees vary depending on project needs.
