About Deep Roots Natives in Durham, North Carolina

We are in a unique position to be able to offer the average homeowner access to a wide selection of native plants and nativars for their gardens. We also have options to help customers with tight budgets through regular sales and specials and free educational opportunities year-round.

Both the NC Native Plant Society and the New Hope Audubon Society have listed us among their “highly recommended” native plant sellers in North Carolina. Many of the native species and nativars that we offer cannot be found anywhere else in the Triangle area, despite the enormous value they provide to pollinators, wildlife and our local biodiversity!

We carefully vet all of our growers and check that they use responsible practices before we ever start buying from them. Whenever possible, we grow out our own material so that we can confidently assure our customers that they’re buying pesticide-free and pest-free plants.

Most importantly, our growers are not just business partners, but also friends and colleagues. We’re part of a professional community of plant geeks, and every single one of us understands exactly how committed we all are to building a healthy and vibrant future for our industry and our planet.

At Deep Roots Natives, we strongly believe that in a world where many of us have become so disconnected from our surroundings and each other, plants give us a unique opportunity to connect with our environment and those we share it with.

Native plants present us with a tactile, beautiful and ever-changing way to interact and engage with the past, present and future of spaces as small as our backyards or as large as an entire continent. We offer plants that are suited to our ever-changing world, with drought-resistant species, low-maintenance plants, and tons of options for your pollinator gardens.

We look forward to growing together with our community in Durham and beyond and invite you to come see our plants (and maybe take some home!), chat with our knowledgeable staff, and join us in our mission to promote native plants, biodiversity, and the wellbeing of our local North Carolina ecosystems.

Tubelings are young seedling trees or bushes that are grown rapidly in a greenhouse in plug containers, and at the age of 3 months they are as big and strong as field-grown plants a year old. Tubelings have wall established root systems and for best results they should be planted directly in their permanent location.

We currently have the following plants available as tubelings, $8.99:
Salix nigra (Black Willow)
Salix sericea (Silky Willow)
Chamaecyparis thyiodes (Atlantic White Cedar)
Euonymus americanus (Hearts-a-bustin / Strawberry Bush)
Spirea tormentosa (Steeplebush / Hardhack)
Lyonia lucida (Fetterbush)

Come by and visit us this weekend! Open Sat-Sun 9am-6pm & Tue-Fri 8am-6pm
