    Can you tell me where I can purchase native Sweetgrass plants? I’m looking for the the one that produces the pink blooms in late summer and fall – I see numberous ones in bloom around the area now.

    Thank you for your response.

    I bought my sweet grass a few years ago, at Lagree Farms River Road on Johns Island. They were available from seed size pots to 1 gallon. their prices were very reasonable.

    Hi Dorothy!

    I’m sorry you missed our plant sale earlier this month — we had a lot of sweetgrass for sale! I’m not sure where you live, but call your local nurseries! I am even seeing sweetgrass available more frequently in big box stores like Lowe’s, too.

    Hope this helps! I agree — the sweetgrass is absolutely spectacular this time of year!

    I am looking for a native azalea, Ray’s Rubra. Everywhere I go I am told that they may only be available through a wholesale nursery. I don’t know of any and from what I’m told, they do not sell to the public.
    Does anyone know where I can purchase some of these beautiful azaleas?

  5. katieellis says:


    Good question! I will do some digging and get back to you. I can tell you that we did not have that specific variety of azalea at our sale, but maybe one of our suppliers does.


  6. Eddie says:

    Native azaleas are not really readily available and it is likely you’ll need to go the wholesale nursery route, which you will need to have an ‘in’ with. In years past Home Depot of all places has had a handful but I haven’t been there in quite a while so not sure whether they have had them this season or not. That is the only sighting I have had of them in the retail world, at least in the Charleston area. Wholesale nurseries will not sell to the public so hopefully you have a family member or friend in the landscaping industry that can get them for you. It may be a longshot but you might be able to get a broker to get you some assuming you need some quantities. Someone like John Deere landcapes in the Summerville area may be able to get them for you, but probably not going to mess with it unless you have a decent sized order overall, but worth asking. I am not familiar with ‘Rays Rubra’ necessarily but more so talking in generalities. A quick search of Ray’s rubra indicates it is an indica azalea which would not be a native, but perhaps there are more than one Ray’s rubra.
