The Native Plant Nursery Survey Project

The Roanoke Valley Nursery Survey is a project to encourage the sale of more native plants by local garden centers. Led by Sharon Burnham, members of the Roanoke Master Gardeners, Roanoke Master Naturalists, Blue Ridge Wildflower Society, and other individuals visited garden centers in the Roanoke Valley to survey which native plants are offered locally for sale, using the list of plants developed by the Plant SWVA Natives campaign. We hope the survey will promote the value of native plants, encourage the public to ask for more native plants, and encourage garden centers to prompt their suppliers to grow more and a wider variety of native plants.

These results are a snapshot of which native plants and cultivars were sold by nurseries within the Roanoke Valley in 2022, along with our assessment of each cultivar. We hope to update the information as it is made available. 

The addresses and phone numbers of nurseries in the survey, as well as additional resources, can be found clicking below.
