where to purchase native plant species #745372

Asked April 20, 2021, 3:49 PM EDT

We are building a home on a lot with a large slope/sandy soil that is prone to erosion; we have cleared the buckthorn and other invasives but want to plant something right away will have a good root system and spread quickly; and look beautiful. I've looked at your native plant recommendations but it's hard to tell what will be best for our situation. Can you give advice?

Thank you for writing.
The University of Minnesota is unable to suggest specific corporations but I do have a list of natives https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/rys/pg/encyclopedia.html

and the MN Native Plant Society has specific information. http://mnnps.org/

I hope this helps.
