New England Natives

Rolling Green Nursery defines New England Native as plants which are indigenous to New England, with the inclusion of cultivars. We consider cultivars of native species nativars. Nativars aspires to produce larger flowers, a wider range of color options, compact habits, etc. with the intent of increasing hardiness in New England. Rolling Green Nursery consciously selects inventory that does not promote invasive behavior.
