Located in Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, USA, this is one of the few nurseries dedicated entirely to the cultivation of native plants. Over 430 species of native plants are represented in this small business, run in the owner’s backyard and hidden away in the middle of a decidedly suburban looking neighborhood.
I need native perennials for my summer fieldwork, so this is where I came to get them!
With all of these native plants, many native insects and birds are also attracted, making the gardens feel like a little bit of heaven.
Here’s another post of mostly flowers!
And in the woods just outside the nursery, my very own Spring Beauty.
