Earth Sangha's Wild Plant Nursery Species List
The Wild Plant Nursery is a working nursery focused on growing for restoration projects the DC region. Our collection is entirely “local ecotype.” We grow all of our plants from material that we ourselves collect, with permission, from the forests and meadows of the Washington, DC, region. We propagate almost entirely from seed or spore, except for a few species that we propagate vegetatively, from dividing whole-plant rescues or cuttings. While we are not a garden center we do sell to homeowners to help fund our restoration work. Check out our inventory below!
The Wild Plant Nursery is located in Franconia Park at 6100 Cloud Dr. Springfield, VA 22150. When you enter Franconia Park turn right down the gravel road and you'll find us behind the community garden plots. Click here for directions. Please note that our nursery and office addresses are different.
Trees, shrubs, and woody vines: Gallon Because our stock is mainly used for restoration work, our woodies are typically 1-2ft tall.
Herbaceous: Quart pots
Herbaceous: Plugs (Plugs are purchased by the tray (21 or 50 cell trays) and cannot be purchased individually.)
Earth Sangha members qualify for discount prices of 25% off per pot and $0.25 off per plug. Anyone who has donated a minimum of $35 in the past year qualifies as a member. You can join at the nursery, or use our Donate page.
The list is current as of December 1, 2021.
Aren't sure where to start? To better refine plant selection, we're pleased to introduce our new Native Plant Compendium – an online resource that lists all the species we have in propagation at our Wild Plant and where best to plant them.
