Redbud Native Plant Nursery offers excellent quality container-grown native plants for the mid-Atlantic region.
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, ponds, and home landscapes for retail and wholesale customers. We gladly advise customers on plant selection.
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 1 quart to 2 gallons. Trees and shrubs are available in containers from 1 to 15 gallons—balled and burlapped trees and shrubs available by order.
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 or herbicides.
