American Native Plants was established in 1998 as a small, 2-acre backyard operation in Kingsville, MD, growing only five different species of native trees and shrubs. Over the past 23 years, they have outgrown multiple locations and now reside on over 20 acres in beautiful Middle River, MD. Today American Native Plants grows hundreds of species, producing thousands of containerized plants each year.
From day one, the mission of ANP has been to provide quality native plants that:
- Create sustainable wildlife habitat
- Contribute to ecological biodiversity
- Restore and replenish clean waterways
With the onset of climate change and extreme weather events, ecological restoration is more important than ever before. The species grown at ANP help increase tree canopy cover, reverse forest fragmentation, and infiltrate stormwater runoff. They are honored to be part of an industry that contributes to sustainable ecosystems.
