The GreenUP Ecology Park Plant Catalogue

We are in the process of updating our plant catalogue. At the moment, you can view the catalogue for information about and photos of plants, trees, and shrubs, but it does not include current inventory or pricing.

Please note that the plant catalogue is not updated regularly and is intended to help find quick info about each species. Grow Me Instead is another great resource for learning about the native plant species we offer at the Ecology Park Nursery and appropriate replacements for popular invasive plants.

Compost, Wood Chips, Cedar Chips

Compost: $2 / 5 gal. bucket
Wood Chips: $2 / 5 gal. bucket

Payment Methods

The GreenUP Ecology Park Native Plant Nursery accepts Visa, MasterCard, Debit, and Cash. Please note that the cell service and signal is sometimes poor at Ecology Park. If you wish to avoid delays in processing your payment, please bring cash.

As a charitable organization, proceeds from the Nursery sales contribute to our environmental school programs, workshops, and park maintenance for everyone to enjoy.
