We grow plants that thrive in California's Mediterranean climate.

Native Sons is a wholesale nursery firmly rooted in the heart of California’s Mediterranean climatic core. We work to provide perennials, grasses and shrubs that flourish in a climate defined by moderate winter rainfall and warm dry summers. The cyclical shortage of water here asks its gardeners to plant with a sense of responsibility, an open mind, and an air of adventure. The plants we grow are selected in an effort to reinforce this philosophy.

We draw from our native California flora as well as from the other Mediterranean floras of the world; Australia, South Africa, Chile and the Mediterranean Basin. It is our hope that by offering these plants we might foster a heightened awareness of our climate and the ecological realities inherent in such an environment.
