Come out to Chesapeake Natives Nursery in Rosaryville State Park on Saturday May 18th from 10AM-3PM for our Second Annual Rosaryville Native Plant Festival! We’ll have our usual native plants for sale, as well as community organizations, educational activities, artists, food trucks, music, and more!

We grow local ecotype native species (LENS) from native seed gathered in the wild in the Chesapeake Bay watershed. LENS have coevolved with insects in the Bay ecosystem and so bloom at the times best for local populations, maximizing their contribution to the food web. Chesapeake Natives volunteers will be available to help you find the right native plants for your space.

A list of available plants as well as maps of our nursery will be made available closer to the event date. (
