SCNPS Plant Sales

Looking to Acquire Native Plants?

Plant Sales or Plant Swaps are held by each chapter. Credit: Doug Lockard

Through regional plant sales or swaps, our chapters help bring native plants to public and private landscapes statewide. These events not only provide opportunities for the public to acquire native plants but also serve as educational platforms, informing attendees about the importance of native flora in sustaining healthy ecosystems.

The chapter offers 3,000 to 4,000 native perennials grown at the Upstate Native Nursery (UNN) along with plants grown by members at their homes. The Upstate Native Nursery is open year-round by appointment. They also purchase plants from commercial native plant growers.
