Wildtype exclusively grows plants native to Michigan, from Michigan genotypes. We grow trees, shrubs, grasses, wildflowers and wetland plants typical of Michigan woodlands, wetlands and prairies. It is our objective to propagate nursery stock with enough genetic diversity to create self-sustaining populations. Therefore, the vast majority of our plants are grown from wild seed stock. This is what we mean when we say our plants are borne to be wild. WILDTYPE also provides ecological design & consulting services for public, commercial and residential projects focusing on restoration and preservation of native landscape. Services offered include: species inventory and site assessment; design and planning; and the establishment and management of native landscape. Please contact us for more information.

Bill Schneider’s article on local genotype is very thought provoking and sobering.  See Restoration in a changing landscape what’s a native plant nursery to do?

Ecoservices: design, consulting, assessment, installation, maintenance
Ecotypes: prairie, wet mesic, wetlands, emergent shade, trees & shrubs

The New Leaf Native Plant Nursery specializes in Michigan native plants.  It was established at our home in the historic district of Ypsilanti in 2016.  We are located just a block from EMU.  With each subsequent season we have continued to increase our number of species produced and are currently over 100 (all of which are Michigan natives and great lakes region ecotype).
Most of our stock is hand collected from local wild sources. Everything is grown using organic and sustainable practices. Currently, we are busy working our way through a ton of native transplants that should be available late June- July!
