Native Seed Distribution
Annual Members' Seed Pack
Each year, we offer free seed packets to Garden members (Individual through Director’s Circle levels) through our Members’ Seed Distribution Program. Not a member? Join here! You can also purchase seeds from our online Garden Shop or visit the Shop in person.
PLEASE NOTE: To help prevent the spread of invasive species, we limit our seed distribution to a 12-state region of the Southeast, from the Mississippi River to the Atlantic Ocean and from the Gulf of Mexico north to Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. If you live outside this area, we may be able to help you find sources of native seeds in your region.

North Carolina Wildflower of the Year
Buttonbush In collaboration with the Garden Club of North Carolina, we distribute FREE seed packets of the current North Carolina Wildflower of the Year while supplies last. In 2023, we’re celebrating buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis), a large deciduous shrub that occurs throughout central and eastern North America in swamps, depressional wetlands, and along the banks of streams, rivers, and lakes.
