Email nighthawknatives@gmail.com for a current plant availability list.

 

In addition to growing plants from our species list, we will do site specific seed collections and plant grow outs for habitat restoration projects.

 

We also grow desert adapted edibles, not always native, but good food trees and shrubs for desert home gardens. Our list includes pomegranates, figs, elderberries, loquats, jujubes, goji berries, wolf berries, and moringas.
