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!
Aren't sure where to start? To better refine plant selection, we're pleased to introduce our Native Plant Compendium – with both the home gardener and restoration projects in mind. Here you can find advice on how to get started, how to identify native plant communities, lists of high-value generalist species for every garden, and more! It’s an invaluable resource for those who are new to natives and those with years under their belt (or shovel).
The Wild Plant Nursery is currently closed for plant sales. We will open back up in mid-March.
The Wild Plant Nursery is located in Grove Point Park (formerly known as Franconia Park) at 6100 Cloud Dr. Springfield, VA 22150. When you enter Grove Point Park turn right down the gravel road and you'll find us behind the community garden plots. Click here for directions.
