Nursery Address:

Beaux Arbres is a pioneer farmstead, settled circa 1830, now a native plant nursery. We specialize in plants native to the Ottawa valley and garden-worthy wildflowers from eastern North America. Our plants are nursery propagated — we do not sell plants dug from the wild. We use no pesticides in our nursery.

    1. Yes indeed! Thanks for asking. I am growing a patch of sweet grass for my partner Michael, who is a basket maker. I should have divisions ready to sell this spring. I don’t know when I’ll have seed – sweet grass is notoriously stingy about seed production.
