Our Plants

Go Natives! Nursery offers more than 170 species of native plants from the Pacific NW!  Our inventory includes a wide variety of rain-garden plants like Juncus effusus, Kelsey dogwood, Carex obnuptaEleocharis palustris, and many others such as skunk cabbage, nodding onion and Myrica gale. 

We believe in plants that are ready for the real world. Plants that are propagated or potted at our nursery are given low amounts of organic fertilizer, mycorrhizal fungi for healthy root systems and appropriate soil mixes. We practice integrated pest management and don’t rely on  chemical treatments that weaken the plant’s natural ability to cope with natural stressors. We use non-chlorinated water.

Go Natives! Nursery works with wholesalers from Portland to British Columbia, ferreting out small mom and pop operations that are providing quality product with high “in the ground” survival, at excellent prices.  Our newest supplier is Walla Walla Nursery for some grasses!

Barnhill It’s best to confirm what’s in stock prior to ordering as sometimes things move too fast for us to keep it updated. For large projects, Go Natives! Nursery brokers larger orders than are shown in our inventory. To discuss your project, contact Don Norman at don@gonativesnursery.com.

Visiting the Nursery  by appointment:  To visit and buy plants outside of our public hours, please make an appointment by sending an email to gonatives@gmail.com. The nursery is located in Richmond Beach at 2112 NW 199th St.

If you can, send a list of what you would like to pick up to gonatives@gmail.com  and we can pull the plants ahead of time and have them ready for you to pick up.  Don and his truck are available to help get plants to your place. We offer a consultation with help on a plan, with delivery and placement of plants for $75.

Don has been working with Cari Simson of Urban Systems Design on a Lower Duwamish Opportunity Fund tree canopy project for the past 3 months and we have delivered over 150 trees to over 50 homes in the Georgetown and South Park neighborhoods.  The project will re-start in the fall with a goal of 250 trees.

Don is now helping manage a bird project back down in Louisiana (they keep calling me!) and will be be back and forth until the project manager is settled in.  So please be a little patient as there are a lot of shortages of plants this year and Don may not be available to run around and help!
