Native Shrubs and Trees

(not normally found in nurseries)

Shrubs and trees are the backbone of any landscape design and native trees and shrubs also benefit bugs, birds, bees and butterflies. Many are larval host plants for butterflies and moths. You can start your own food forest, if you can beat the birds to the fruit. All are underused in the landscape. These are native to Indiana; all are species, not cultivars; and all are from our ecoregion. You can see many of these plants on the Native Trees of Indiana River Walk on the Purdue Fort Wayne campus.


To Purchase: Place an order for trees and shrubs before August 15, 2021 by sending an email to indicating the quantity of each species that you want this fall. We will confirm receipt of your order and in August confirm availability, price and pick-up options. Pick-up will be in September and payment is due at time of pick-up after you inspect the plants.
