About Native Plants

Native plants are an area of expertise that few nurseries specialize in. These plants require less maintenance and have a greater rate of survival because they belong here.

Throughout the winter season, the Pennypack has been growing and propagating several native plants and wildflowers in our greenhouse. This is a combined effort of Pennypack staff and volunteers.

Ready to purchase some plant, but you are not an expert at native plants? Not a problem, our staff will be ready to assist you and help you pick out a selection of plants that suit your landscape needs.
