Our Nursery & Our Practices

American Native Plants is committed to growing and distributing native plants that are critical to the establishment of biodiverse natural ecosystems. Since 1998, we have provided millions of plants to landscapers and contractors throughout the mid-Atlantic region and beyond. We have had the privilege of providing high-quality plants for everything from the Hurricane Sandy beach restoration to the 9/11 memorial in honor of Flight 93. We carry an inventory of over 400,000 native trees, native shrubs, and herbaceous native plants.

Our Nursery

Our nursery, conveniently located in Middle River, Maryland, is open year-round to accommodate your native plant needs. We are constantly updating and increasing our inventory to meet the demands of our customers. We keep a reservoir of plants to be shipped and distributed as needs arise. We continue to plant and grow throughout the year in anticipation of our customers’ needs. Our heated greenhouse spans half of an acre and we are always planting new crops to have a large inventory on hand. If you are interested in seeing what we have in stock or placing an order, contact us or give us a call at 410-529-0552. Our nursery is located at 7500 Marshy Point Rd., Middle River, MD. 21220. Out of town? We ship throughout the entire country, but primarily provide plants that flourish in the Eastern United States.

Our Practices

At American Native Plants, growing and cultivating is a year-round process. Our workers are regularly stratifying and planting new seeds in response to customer orders or to start new contract grow projects for larger restoration projects. We pride ourselves on having a large and constantly growing selection of native trees, native shrubs, and herbaceous native plants. Beyond our commitment to providing quality native plants, we are devoted to seeking the provenance of all our plants. We currently have provenance available for over 75% of our inventory.

We do not use neonics (neonicotinoids, which harm bees). We use a minimum of chemicals, usually within our greenhouses, necessary to control diseases and harmful insects. Whenever possible, we use natural controls, such as predatory insects. Native plants are part of a large ecosystem. As such, they provide food and shelter for native insects, so we do not interfere with those relationships.
