Plant List

We were lucky to have a fabulous team who helped us design and plant our garden. They selected species that are native, beautiful, and of course that support the pollinators! A plant list is included below.  Our garden is ever changing so this list is not exhaustive, but it includes most of our main varieties. 

To purchase native plants locally, we recommend Shore River Gardens in Manasquan (ask for Richard Mohr), Sickles Market in Red Bank, and Molzons in Lincroft. These stores offer some natives but tend to carry a limited supply, so may require special ordering. We also sourced a lot of our plants from Pleasant Run in Allentown NJ, which has a wide selection but sells wholesale only.
