Carolina Native Nursery

Carolina Native Nursery is a specialty grower of native shrubs, perennials ferns, and grasses. We are currently growing over 200 different species with many cultivars. Our specialty is Native Azaleas, Rhododendrons and Mt. Laurels. And we service wholesale clients throughout the eastern U.S.

Discover Native Plants

William Bartram, in Travels (1791), said in the first description of the Flame Azalea, “This is the most gay and brilliant flowering shrub yet known.” We agree, and made it our brand.

We are located on 12 beautiful acres in Burnsville, North Carolina at 1126 Prices Creek Road in Yancey County, the gateway to Mt. Mitchell. Wholesale AND retail clients are always welcome.Please forward us your whole plant list and let us help. Call 828-682-1471, fax 828-682-1303, or email.

Why Choose a Native Plant Nursery?

Carolina Native Nursery is open for wholesale and retail from 8:30 to 5:00 Monday-Friday throughout the year. The fact that garden centers, wholesale nurseries, and rewholesalers have such a limited selection of native shrubs, their staff possesses little knowledge of them, and they are not displayed as a group, makes a trip to see us certainly worthwhile. Plus our prices can’t be beat.

Take a moment to review our plant list before you come, or better yet print it out and make some notes. We really like cash but are happy with credit cards and checks too.

Wholesale Native Plants & Shrubs

We service wholesale clients throughout the eastern U.S. For your convenience, we routinely publish our most current availability and price lists for both wholesale catalog and retail catalog orders.
