Native Plant Sources

I would like to start a list of native plant sources on Vancouver Island, and other recommended sources (off island, mail order, etc.) for our members and readers. Please provide as much information as you can, including websites, email, etc.



I will start it off with Streamside Native Plant Nursery

I have contacted the new owners, and they are open for business! Spring time hours are Tuesday to Friday 0900 to 1700, Saturday 0900 to 1500. They say they will be reducing their hours during the summer, but will also be open by appointment if needed.

For small quantities of native seed I have had good success with:
Northwest Meadowscapes
1240 W. Sims Way
Port Townsend Wa.


Stellata Plants is a small specialty nursery located on the Saanich Peninsula of Vancouver Island. They offer a growing range of drought tolerant plants … I follow her on Instagram and she worked in England at Beth Chatto Gardens so has great experience . She is adapting to the Island with Native Plants.

Satin Flower Plants in Saanich has a broad range of plants, but they are popular and sometimes out of stock! Isn’t that wonderful… natives are catching on!
They also sell seeds.
They specialize in plants from southern Vancouver Island but there is overlap with us.
