Bowman's Hill Wildflower Preserve is the premier place in the Delaware Valley to buy plants native to Pennsylvania, New Jersey and surrounding states.
Over 200 species of high-quality native wildflowers, vines, ferns, shrubs and trees are offered for sale at our Spring and Fall Native Plant Sales. All plants are nursery-propagated; none are wild collected.
Knowledgeable staff and volunteers at the sales can help you choose plants and answer questions. Free resource material is available, including plant lists for specific growing conditions. Download these Native Plant Information Sheets here.
Native Plant Sales are part of the Preserve's educational mission and are a fundraiser to support our programs. Selected plants also are available on site during the growing season.
Our Members' Preview Sale is an exclusive opportunity for Preserve members to buy plants before the sale opens to the public. Memberships can be purchased at the Preserve before, or during the Members' Preview Sale, in advance by phone (215) 862-2924, or online here where you can also learn about the many additional membership benefits.
