Welcome to RareFind Nursery!

Native Plants

RareFind Nursery is a retail and mail order nursery that offers a wide variety of native trees, shrubs & perennials including many rare and unusual species. With so many native plants to choose from we want RareFind Nursery to be your go-to native plant nursery. 

For the purposes of our catalog and this website we define native plants as straight species and their cultivars that are native to the continental United States. A plant may be native to one region but not another so we encourage you to do further research as to what plants are native to your particular region. Your local native plant society is a great place to start.
