Native plant nurseries aren’t abundant in Indian River County or nearby. For a list of native plant nurseries throughout the state (& a plant finder by species), visit the website of the Florida Association of Native Nurseries.
Please do not hesitate to ask your favorite “regular” nursery to get you a native plant (or plants). Few local nurseries grow their own plants, so they go on buying expeditions regularly. Your request may help them to offer more native plants.
