Where can I find native pollinator-friendly flowers?


I have two small flower gardens in my yard. I would like to have native pollinator-friendly flowers, but I am struggling to find greenhouses/plant sales that have specifically native grown plants. Any ideas?

My first advice is always to call local greenhouses and nurseries to see if they have native plant selections, as many do have at least some portion of their stock in natives. But it sounds like you may have tried that, without luck! The Wild Seed Project maintains a list of nurseries in Maine that sell native plants, as does the Midcoast Maine chapter of Wild Ones, so hopefully you can find an operation near where you live.

Happy gardening.
