CNPS Santa Clara Valley Native Plant Sales

Conserve water and make your garden beautiful with California native plants. Bring habitat value and a sense of place to the garden. Our chapter nursery has periodic plant sales through our online store and a sale at our nursery in the fall. An illustrated list from Calflora of the species (this does not include cultivars) we have grown at the nursery is available here. The list includes plants that may not currently be available -please check the online store for availability.

After purchasing plants online, scheduled pickup is available at the nursery. Plant orders can also be delivered between Belmont and San Jose. Please see the online store for details.

You do not have to be a member to buy plants from our online store. We will do everything we can to fill your orders quickly and get your plants to you, but we are all volunteers. We are adding new stock on a regular basis, so if you don't see what you want, please keep checking the store. We do not have an online inventory outside the store -- what you see in the store is what's available.

All proceeds from the nursery go toward supporting our Chapter's activities. Thanks so much for your support!
