Native Plant selection

All our plants are local, indigenous species. Our plants are native to a variety of habitats in Southern Vancouver Island, including meadow, forest, wetland, and beach. Each is grown from seed or cuttings from our field-grown stock (not wild collected). All are grown without herbicides, pesticides (including neonicotinoids), and chemical fertilizers.

Below is a list of the potted plants we currently provide. We update our list regularly, so please check back to see what is in stock, and what new species have been added to our nursery. 

We are happy to accommodate custom and wholesale orders with appropriate notice. Plugs are also available for many of our species (inquire directly). Visit our Seeds page to see our current inventory and prices for seeds. For all orders, contact us at info@saanichnativeplants.ca. 

Our new Resources page has plant lists for a variety of conditions and situations. Consult this page to help you choose the right native plants for your project.
