Native plants are required for restoration or native habitat projects that bring to back to life an area’s natural beauty. When talking about native plants, the first question to ask is, native to where? Plants that grow naturally in one location are not necessarily the same plants and varieties that grow naturally just a short distance away. To assure that plants are native to your area, check with nurseries to learn where their stock or seeds originated. Many times, packages of wildflower seeds contain varieties that are wild, but may not be native to the local area, and may be invasive. Below, you will find nurseries that specialize in stocking plants that are native to the west and Rocky Mountain Regions.
