I just received my shrubs and they are great looking plants. Thanks for the extra care that was taken in packaging them up. They are very large plants. My expectations were exceeded for sure. You can count on me being a return customer. (Copper Ridge Viburnum)Stacey from MI

Plants arrived promptly, well packed and vigorous.Judy from MA
I’m very happy with my Allegheny. It’s a vibrant strong plant with flower buds already to pop open. I planted it in the ground, then it snowed. Can’t wait to see it bloom!Paul in NY
It was extremely important I got a healthy plant with a guarantee and Grimm’s delivered that piece of mind and satisfaction to me. Someone took extra care and put love into growing this lilac. It it about 2.5 feet tall, thick and as bushy as a little plant can be. Would buy over and over.Rhonda from VT
Just as described, awesome packaging and instructions to boot.Mary In FL

Native plants are any plants that the original species is found naturally existing in wild populations. For garden centers in the United States, this may mean any plant whose native populations can be found growing in the continental United States, Canada, and Mexico. Most natives in the nursery trade are specifically applied to plants that are from native prairies of the Great Plains and eastern plains and fields. Native plants can include annuals, perennials, shrubs, vines, grasses, and trees. Many of our native plants have been cultivated and are no longer sold under the native status. One example of a native plant not being sold under native status is ninebark (Physocarpus opulifolius). The eastern ninebark shrub is native to the eastern 1/3 of the United States, and has now been propagated to include more than 10 cultivars. There are many nurseries and growers that want native status to be applied only to plants that can be grown from seeds of plants collected in the wild. Some common examples of natives are Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa), Button bush (Cephalanthus occidentalis), and Indian grass (Sorghastrum nutans).
Native plants often take less care than introduced species, being able to withstand feeding from native insects, the ability to resist and tolerated diseases better, and being adapted to the climates which they are present in. Native plants are best adapted to regions and landscapes that are within 150 miles of their seed source. This is not to say that they will not live elsewhere, they are just at their best in that range. Native perennials, grasses and annuals are quite used to being grazed down and can often take heavy trimming. They should be cleaned up in early spring, either through cutting to the ground or burning (where possible). Native shrubs and trees can be left alone to grow, but should be pruned on a schedule when planted in a landscape situation.
Natives also double as pollinator plants, butterfly attractors, and are often drought tolerant. They can take a wide range of soils, light conditions, and weather.
