California Natives at Suncrest Nurseries Inc.

Though Suncrest Nurseries offers interesting plants from several continents, including much of the United States, a few of us are almost obsessively devoted to the native plants of California. We regularly stalk the wilds, always with at least a semiconscious "eye out" for potentially gardenworthy natives, and we bring back seeds and cuttings from nearly every trip. We also rely on friends at several California botanic gardens, and on passionate native plant gardeners, who bring us their plant treasures for trial and possible introduction. All in all, it may be the best part of our work here, and we're privileged to be able to contribute a wide offering of beautiful natives to California horticulture.

You'll find a lengthy list of our native offerings below, organized by pages to make it a bit more manageable. Click on the name of any plant on the list for a fuller display of plant characteristics and cultural needs and possibilities. Also be sure to download our flyer on native plants from the Publications page of this site, for easy reference offline.
