Mid Atlantic Natives is the native plant division of Superior Nursery, located in the Susquehanna Valley of southern Pennsylvania. We are an organic practice production nursery specializing in growing plants native to the north east, Mid-Atlantic and in particular our beloved Chesapeake Bay watershed and eastern seaboard.
The native trees, shrubs and perennials including grasses, wetland plants, and wildflowers are plants native to Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware, New Jersey, New York and West Virginia, Washington DC, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Canada and many more areas of North America. All are nursery propagated from seed, division and cuttings and grown at our nursery. None are ever taken from the wild.
Our native plant inventory contains only those native plant species that existed in north east North America prior to European settlement. We do not consider named cultivars to be native.
We are an organic practice propagation nursery. We utilize biological pest control and OMRI or USDA certified organic herbicides, pesticides and fertilizers. We are committed to providing pollinators and wildlife safe, non-toxic food and habitat. Our nursery property is a National Wildlife Foundation Certified Wildlife Habitat. Visit us and see nature in action.
We spend our private time doing what we love most, hiking and exploring the forests, rivers and coastal areas of the Mid Atlantic. There is no more beautiful area than the one we call home. The plants placed there by Mother Nature herself are the ones we personally have a special regard for.
For years, even though our native plant selections were some of our favorites in addition to being beautiful, tough, ecologically valuable and economical, plants labeled "native" required surprising effort to find themselves going home with someone. Perhaps because they didn't come with flashy pot colors and huge marketing blitzes they didn't get much attention from time constrained consumers.
The fact that you are reading this is an example of educated consumers being smarter than marketers. We hope you continue your focus on native plants with us. No matter what you want and need, there is a native plant that will meet your expectations and do so with less effort, less expense and more satisfaction.
