Plants are living organisms that require proper care; there is no guarantee of survival. Species substitutions may occur without notice if quantities are sold out, especially with the Seasonal Plant Packages.  All sales are final. 

All of the plants have limited quantities and this sale is First Come, First Served.

Our plant sources are local, well established nurseries. The Colorado State Forest Service (CSFS) Nursery inventory can be viewed at CSFS Nursery Inventory.  Three digit SKU numbers on the order form reflect CSFS stock.

Plant types available this year include Native Plants, Edible Landscape, Pollinators, Ornamental and Windbreak Suitable.  Types are noted on the order form by the first letter in the Type: N, E, P, O, W.  Plants are available in an array of sizes, individually and in batches, Seasonal Collections of plants come in a handy flat.

N Native plants adapted to our local climate and soil conditions making them the hardiest plants one can buy and the least thirsty, once established. These are also the most beneficial plants for nurturing native wildlife and insects. Additionally, native plants require the least amount of chemicals for problem bugs for example; by not damaging the beneficial soil ecosystem. Varieties available are the beautiful Rocky Mountain Ninebark bush, Pixwell Gooseberry bush, and Manzanita, Panchito.

EEdible Landscape plants include ‘edible to people’ fruiting plants. Kids tend to enjoy Edible Landscaping and the multitude of jams, jellies, syrups, pies and scone yummies make awesome homespun gifts.  Edible Landscapes encourage birds and mammals to spend time eating bugs, seeds and fruits.  Pollinators naturally thrive in these habitats as well. Varieties available are Montmorency Cherry, Native Plum trees, Golden Current bushes, and more!

PPollinator plants are flowering plants that create habitat and food for all pollinators and add beauty to make you smile! Pollination results in the production of seeds and is necessary for many plants to reproduce. Varieties available are Mountain Snowberry bush, Boulder Raspberry bushes, Orange Globe Mallow, and so many more!

O Ornamental plants make a statement with their distinct colors and habits. While this type is subjective, it’s worthwhile to note the stellar examples we offer.  Varieties available are the Purple Cone Flower, Rocky Mountain Maple, Crabapple and depending on your tastes every other plant on the list!

WWindbreak Suitable plants is a functional designation for those working plants in the windbreak that divert prevailing winds up, creating a wind shadow on the downwind side. Increased plant diversity in your windbreak directly correlates to increased habitat, and in turn more birds, bugs and mammals. Varieties available are the Rocky Mountain Juniper, Colorado Blue Spruce and Mountain Mahogany.

Size options vary based on our source nurseries.  This handy key here illustrates the different sizes with their respective quantities and price variations.
