Use the form below to find native plant species that suit your needs. For details about a plant or plant family, enter a common or scientific name in the top form. For a list of plants that suit your specific needs, fill in fields in the second form.
All of the second form's fields are optional, but enter at least Plant Type and Region. Click here or on the map to find your region. Mountain, Piedmont and Coastal Plain are the regions delineated for this search tool. The regions generally have different soils, elevation, hydrology and climate, so the plants in each are generally different. Bear in mind that counties along boundaries may fall within two regions. For specific information about regions, visit the Virginia Natural Community overview.
Consult the Virginia Native Plant Society's list of native-plant nurseries when you're ready to purchase plants.
