Coast Salish Plant Nursery

The Coast Salish Plant Nursery carries a wide range of plants – perennials, groundcovers, shrubs, and trees - that are native to the region. Our aim is to recognize and emphasize the cultural associations of Coast Salish plants, and how they can be used to improve habitat value for local wildlife.

We propagate some of our stock on-site, and obtain the rest from nearby wholesale sources. Proceeds from the Nursery support habitat restoration and educational programming on Coast Salish culture and ecology.

Regular Coast Salish plant walks are coordinated with plant sale hours, and continue through the summer. Join local ethnobotanist Senaqwila Wyss as she walks through Maplewood Flats teaching about indigenous plant use, from medicines for teas to edible berries! See the event page for more details.
