The Adkins Arboretum Native Plant Nursery has offered the Chesapeake Bay gardener the largest selection of ornamental native plants for more than 20 years.

Native plant sales are held semiannually, in April and September.

Adkins Arboretum’s container-grown native plants are guaranteed to be true to name and healthy upon purchase. Please inspect and count all plant material upon receipt. While it is our aim to provide quality plant material, we do not give a warranty as to the future life of the plants. In rare instances, claims will be considered, and in those cases, it is mutually agreed that Adkins Arboretum’s total liability is limited to refund or replacement.

Regarding Presale Orders: Native plant presale orders are accepted based on confirmed orders from our network of growers; however, all plant material is subject to crop failures, damage by natural causes, and conditions beyond our control that may render them unavailable for purchase. If one of these instances should arise, we will contact you prior to the plant sale to arrange a replacement if possible, or otherwise will arrange for substitution or refund as requested at the time of order pickup.
