We specialize in garden-worthy native species.
From small to large, native landscapes are a natural, resilient choice. Native landscapes can add:
• beauty and fall color
• delicious edibles
• food and cover critical for pollinators and songbirds. Every native plant you add is a vital oasis for wildlife and helps you connect with nature.
Enjoy these benefits and more from late winter through early fall. Choose from our curated collections of native RPM-produced trees, shrubs and perennials

They grow so fast...
The second best thing about this picture is the little oak. Not because it’s ‘little-boy’ sized now. Because it’s RPM-produced and has awesome potential to grow fast. Even faster than little boys.
Imagine. Plants as superheroes. Not just healthy but power-packed. Able to fruit and flower earlier and survive better. And grow up to two times faster. Traditionally-produced plants aren't even close.
RPM-production is all-natural. We found a 12-step method that works with the plant. The result? Superior plants. In fact, so much so, it’s patented. Plants produced with RPM-technology are the benchmark for conservation plantings around the world.
