Colorado Native Plant & Seed Sources

Note: The nurseries listed below responded to our survey asking about their native plant inventory in April 2024. We’d love to add other nurseries that sell native plants – please contact us if you have current information

Sourcing and purchasing native plant species can be a frustrating quest. Many retail garden stores or mail order websites have a limited selection of native plants or have native plants mixed with other plants.

Remember that we help host annual Colorado native plant giveaways/swaps each June, where you may donate your extra seedlings and grab some new ones for your garden!
