GREAT BASIN NURSERY
NATIVE PLANT NURSERY
At Great Basin Nursery we are dedicated to rewilding the built environment. Our mission is to make accessible resilient, climate appropriate plant material to restore and enhance habitats for both people and the animals that depend upon them.
At Great Basin Nursery, we grow numerous plant species native to the arid and semi-arid western states, primarily focusing on the Great Basin geographic area that spans Eastern Oregon, Nevada, and parts of Utah, Idaho, and California. The majority of our plant material is grown from locally collected seed, with a few species purchased from reputable sources. All of our plants are chosen for their beauty and/or their value in local ecosystems. The nursery is located on 10 acres in Central Oregon and we are embarking on our first season as a wholesale native plant nursery! If you're a landscape contractor, nursery retailer or broker, please contact us for information on pricing and contract grows. If you're a homeowner, please subscribe at the bottom of the page for open house dates and other opportunities to purchase plants!
Drawing upon a background in Landscape Architecture, we also offer guidance and planting design recommendations to help get you started. We realize designing with natives can be daunting and unfamiliar, so please reach out if you'd like assistance creating the wild space of your dreams. If you need assistance with installation, we are happy to recommend talented local landscape contractors.
Below you can find species we commonly carry and additional resources to get you started.
