Wholesale Native Plant Nursery & Custom Plant Propagation

For many projects, the key to success is tailoring the plant community to the unique site conditions including soil, water, and geology. To improve ecosystem function, our propagation specialists at Pure Air Natives cultivate plant species that are found in a wide variety of regional ecosystems:

  • Prairie
  • Savanna
  • Glade
  • Wetland

Local seed stocks of the desired species (Yellow Tag) are identified & collected under cooperative agreements. These seeds are then utilized for custom plant propagation.
