Plant Selection Guide
|Wholesale Price Guide|
Streamside Native Plants specializes in the propagation of trees, woody shrubs and perennials from Vancouver Island genetic stock. For many species, geographical variability is an important factor to consider for both plant survival under local conditions and the maintenance of populations naturally adapted to our region.
Although primarily grown for restoration projects, we also propagate a large selection of native shade and sun loving lilies, ground covers, ferns, shrubs, and other specimens to meet your naturescaping requirements.
We have experience in designing planting projects taking advantage
the best habitat qualities each native species has to offer. For
projects we can also custom propagate plants to meet your requirements.
We are open Monday to Friday from 08:30 to 16:30. If you cannot visit the nursery during open hours please phone and we can arrange to accommodate your schedule.
Call 250-757-9999 or toll-free 1-877-570-3138 or email to place an order. Please leave a message if no one is at the nursery.
