Welcome to the South Carolina Native Plant Society!

The South Carolina Native Plant Society is a non-profit organization committed to the preservation and protection of native plant communities in South Carolina. We work to make this happen by providing programs and activities  including field trips, plant rescues, native plant sales, monthly educational lectures and educational journals designed to:

  • Educate and inform members and the general public about the importance of native plants
  • Support efforts by government agencies to protect habitats and endangered species
  • Encourage the use of native plant materials in public and private landscaping
  • Promote the commercial availability of native plant materials

Join us to enjoy and learn more about native plant and to help more people come to understand and appreciate the vital role native plant species play in the health and sustainability of our natural ecosystem!

Save the date: October 31-November 2, 2014
The South Carolina Native Plant Society will hold its annual conference at the historic Penn
Center on St. Helena Island. Speakers, field trips, and workshops will focus on land use and
native plant communities of the Sea Islands. Click here to view brochure
