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.

Shopping during our public sale days will be by appointment only. We instituted the shop by appointment sale because of COVID but our customers told us they liked it – mostly because they did not like fighting the crowds that were commonly encountered.

We will open up the scheduling link on this site on April 20. When you arrive at the nursery someone will check you in. Once you are here you may shop as long as you like.

We recommend coming to one of our public sale days when no minimums apply and we are staffed with people to answer questions. Alternatively retail customers can place orders and schedule a pickup after the last public sale day in spring which is Saturday May 28.

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!

Phenology is the study of periodic events in biological life cycles and how these are influenced by seasonal variations in climate. As native plant growers & conservationists, we should strive not only to satisfy our desire for visual appeal, but also leverage our knowledge & observation of native plant species’ phenology to support the ecosystem we call home year round. By planting plants that belong, and thoughtfully planning your bloom sequence, you are optimizing your ecological benefit to the piece of land you’re managing!!

NO PHYSICAL STOREFRONT
Pre-ordered porch pickups only!
