Nursery Resources

Izel Native Plants is an online retailer that combines inventories from several nurseries dedicated to the responsible sourcing and breeding of native species. The website offers a wide plant selection including trees, ground covers, spring ephemerals, summer and fall bloomers, wetland and drought-tolerant species, and more. Once a purchase is made, the plants are shipped directly from native plant wholesalers.

Tip: Be sure to reference the plant size guide. Plants are typically delivered in flats of 32- to 72-count landscape-ready plugs.
