for Native Wildflowers and Herbs
"Where can I find it?"
is without doubt the most frequently asked question. Following are a few
places you can contact if you are looking for native wildflowers and herbs.
They are in no particular order. Some offer more unusual items such as
grasses and ferns - so if at first you don't succeed, try all of 'em.
To create the list, I used a combination of personal knowledge, references
from friends, mention in the Georgia Botanical Society newsletter, and
website searches. Since I live in the southern mountains, I have concentrated
on sources for the plants most familiar to me - roughly the southeastern
mountains and piedmont. Many of the same plants also grow in the midwest
and north. I don't endorse any particular supplier and have had only minimal
contact with a few, so shop at your own risk.

||www.forfarmers.com is a marketplace for buying and selling various breeds of garden, landscape, fruits, horticulture, flowers, plants, seeds, crops, vegetables as well as agricultural jobs and a wide range of services. I have not done any buying or selling through this site myself, but it looks like a good 'trading post' for everything from medicinal plants to livestock.
