Plants

Riverview Nursery sells only native plants, specifically plants native to northeastern Indiana with a few from our ecoregion because they are such good landscape plants.  Most of our plants are local genotypes, propogated from seed collected from undisturbed areas in this region. Our stock is inspected and we are licensed by the Indiana DNR.

 

Native Perennials, Grasses and Sedges:

Plants are selected for growth habits suitable for landscapes and gardens, such as height, conspicuous bloom, and attractive foliage. Other considerations are bird, butterfly and pollinator food and habitat, cut flowers, and edibility.

Rain Garden - search for wet soil moisture

Woodland Garden - search for shade

Butterfly and Pollinator Garden - almost any of these native plants

Detailed information about each plant is on this spreadsheet.

Native Shrubs and Trees:

We sell trees and shrubs not normally found in nurseries that are suitable for landscapes and support biodiversity. For all the shrubs in your landscape that just aren’t cutting it—roses that are languishing, invasive butterfly bushes and burning bushes—now’s a great time to replace them with a beautiful native just made for our Indiana climate.
