Edge of the Woods Native Plant Nursery is the only nursery in the Lehigh Valley specializing in native plants. Our horticultural staff is the best in the area. Simply put, we know plants.  If you would like to attract birds, butterflies, hummingbirds, or pollinators to your landscape, native plants are the way to go.  Native plants evolved with birds, butterflies, hummingbirds and pollinators and provide the habitat and food they need in your own backyard.

Native plants provide natural and sustainable beauty and a welcoming habitat for birds, butterflies and other insects, ensuring a future filled with a healthy diversity of plants and wildlife.

We are committed to sustainable growing practices.  We use a certified organic, compost based potting mix for most of our container plants.  Our plants are not forced with growth hormones, we use minimal pesticides in the nursery and practice IPM (Integrated Pest Management).

We offer quality container grown native plants including trees, shrubs, grasses, ferns, and wildflowers for the mid-Atlantic region.  We specialize in matching the right plant to the right place, whether you are working on a home landscape, woodland, wetland, hedgerow, or rain garden.  We offer small-scale contract growing for wholesale customers and assist landscapers in design and plant selection for their clients.

We do not ship plants or offer a catalog.   Please visit us to see our plants and make your selection.
