Minnesota Native Plant Nurseries and Retailers

Minnesota has many native plant nurseries and retailers. We recommend sourcing your native plants and seeds from within 175 miles of your project location to the extent possible. If you don’t have a native plant retailer near you, there are some great nurseries in the state that offer shipping on online orders. Browse the list below to find a native plant nursery near you.

If you’re shopping in the spring, native plant sales are another great option for finding plants. Check out our list of spring native plant sales in the Twin Cities Metro and throughout Minnesota.

Your local Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) may sell native plants or trees to residents during the spring, and some offer native garden kits. Check out your local SWCD website for more details.

Wherever you shop, be sure to ask for native plants that are insecticide- and neonicotinoid-free. Plants raised with these chemicals can be harmful to bees. Use these tips for avoiding cultivars, nativars, and hybrids, which are not reimbursable.
