A Thoughtful & Creative Gift Idea for

Gifters Who Want to Give Something Truly Long-Lasting

    What’s the difference between a big box home improvement store gift card and a Direct Native Plants e-gift card?

  • We provide expertise drawing on 23 years selling vibrant native plants that enhance the look, functionality & vitality of local eco-systems. (No generic invasive plant species here that you have to work heavily to maintain!)
  • You’ll receive healthy and strong plants that are home-grown at our facility in Maryland. (We bet no big box store can say they grow their own plants from seedlings!)
  • As an online retailer, we know how to properly package native plants that are ready to go from shipping truck straight to your growing site or landscaping without missing a beat. (You don’t need to drive out and shop around!)

  3. Our Spring shipping season is expected to open in March or April, and our Fall shipping season is expected to open in September, weather permitting;
  4. We strongly suggest your recipient get on our emailing list, so they will be notified of when new inventory is available;
  5. All orders are shipped directly to their doorstep and can even be scheduled by week—just in case their ground isn’t quite defrosted from the winter;
  6. Our plants are organized by gardening solutions, if your favorite gardener needs help choosing the right plants for the job;
  7. We provide native range maps as well as a hardiness zone map to help our customers choose the best plants for their location.

    “I'm loving my new shrubs. They are leafing out beautifully and so happy. I had to plant them when it was wet and going to rain for like a week so I wanted to get them in the ground. Used a little leaf litter to help with drainage since the soil was wet. These shrubs didn't care! So happy and healthy. You guys clearly take great care of these. Got Aronia, Cranberry Viburnum, and Buttonbushes. Thank you Direct Native Plants!”
