Where to buy native plants?

Can anybody tell me where I can find native plants in the north metro area?
Landscape Alternatives is the only place I have been able to find, but they are a bit of a drive away.

I was in a similar situation last year. I decided I wanted to grow Rattlesnake Master and couldn't find anything local and I refused to spend $10 per plant for mail order. For $2.00 I now have more seed than I know what to do with. Granted, I may have to wait a bit but my wallet thanks me.

Try Prairie Restorations:

Another one is:
http://www.prairienursery.com/store/

Both of these are located in the MN and WI.

Try Dragonfly Gardens. They are located in Wisconsin but
be at the farmers markets this year.
They have allot of natives!

Yes, check out a farmers' market near you. I get most of my natives from The Vagary, which has a stall at the St. Paul market. Farmers' markets seem to attract native plant enthusiasts (like me).

Provided by your tax dollars.

The Friends School plant sale catalog has three pages of native plants, if you can do your shopping on Mother's Day weekend.

I've never been there, but Mother Earth Gardens in Minneapolis carries native plants. I believe they get their plants from Landscape Alternatives. I keep meaning to check them out.

I was at Landscape Alternatives last weekend (yes, I am eager to dive in!). Some things are available now, but they said it was too early for most plants, and to call ahead to make sure they've got what I want.
