Native Plant Sale

These plants love the Keys!

Ready to take your island garden to a new level? Start with our experts in the Garden’s Native Plant Nursery. Every third Saturday we are here to help you choose the right native plants and trees for our Zone 11 gardens.

SPECIAL EVENT JULY 20: Along with the plant sale, food waste for composting will be accepted and entertainment will be provided by a local DJ playing a wide range of music.  Bring your food scraps to support composting in the Keys pilot research and educational collaboration with the UF/IFAS Monroe County Extension.  Food waste will be accepted every third Saturday during the plant sale.  Acceptable items: Fruits, Vegetables, Grains (Pasta, Bread, Rice), Coffee grounds & Egg Shells.  No Meat or Dairy.

Master Gardeners will be on site to answer any plant questions.  The Nursery has 160 species of native trees, shrubs & vines available including Native & Cuban palms, and vegetable plants.  There are more than 2,000 plants which attract birds, butterflies and other pollinators in 1-gallon to 15-gallon pots.  Key West Botanical Garden members receive a 15% discount.  Memberships are available on site.  The Garden is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation and all proceeds directly benefit the Garden’s conservation program.  

Our Garden Guardians cultivate hundreds of Florida Keys native plants and trees designed to flourish in our Zone 11 sub-tropical climate. Not only are they beautiful specimens, but our native plants are salt and drought tolerant, require minimal care and will work for every type of island landscaping.

The Nursery has 160 species of native plants available including Native & Cuban palms, Tomato and Pepper plants.  The total nursery inventory totals more than 2,000 plants which attract birds, butterflies and other pollinators in 1-gallon to 15-gallon pots.  Key West Botanical Garden members receive a 15% discount.  Memberships are available on site.  The Garden is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit corporation and all proceeds directly benefit the Garden’s conservation program.
