At Native Plants in Claremont we specialize in seed grown native perennial wildflowers, grasses and shrubs. We harvest seed locally and sustainably, work to establish our own stock based on distinct populations, and always search for new sites to prevent inadvertent selection within our plant stock. Our nursery’s Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices help plants grow and stay healthy naturally. We regularly monitor plant health and diagnose problems. Our IPM strategy focuses on preventative measures. When necessary we intervene to control pests and disease using organic and biodegradable products. We supply plants to conservation organizations, wholesale customers such as landscapers and nurseries and to the public for their home gardens.
