Another Way to Buy Native Plants This Spring

American Native Plants, a wholesale only nursery, recently announced that it will be open to the public for retail sales on Sunday April 5th from 9am-3pm.
The nursery carries about 200 species of only native plants. The vast majority of plants are woody plants: trees and shrubs and some vines, however there are a few groundcovers, ferns, perennials, and wetland plants (in the hoophouse) as well. They do not carry cultivars except for a few species which are diocious and readily available, such as Winterberry. Unfortunately for the Inkberry and Spicebush, you must visit the nursery during bloomtime to tell the difference and take your chances, just like nature.

The nursery is located at 4812 E. Joppa Road, Perry Hall, Md 21228 From I-95 northbound past baltimore, take exit 67B. Turn right at the first light on Honeygo Blvd. Turn left at the fourth light onto Joppa Road. The nursery is 1/4 mile on right up a gravel road. Look for the large green pyramid with the tree emblem. Drive up the road to the top of the hill to park and for office.
