There is always music amongst the trees in the garden, but our hearts must be very quiet to hear it.

Purchasing wildflowers

When buying wildflowers, make sure they are propagated, not removed from the wild! If you have any doubt, ask! Some plant species have been driven to extinction in the wild due to the collection of wild plants!

Butterfly House Opening

Toadshade will be at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed’s “Butterfly House Opening” event today, Saturday June 24, from 10 am to 1 pm (31 Titus Mill Rd, Pennington, New Jersey 08534)! We’ll be bringing a selection of host plants as well as good nectar sources for butterflies and moths, and there will be lots of information about using native plants to attract butterflies to your garden at the event. We hope to see you there!

Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers' Market

We will be at the Hunterdon Land Trust Farmers' Market every Sunday this summer from 9 until 1. Stop by to browse our wide selection of our native perennial plants and seeds or to ask for advice. Let us know if there’s something in particular you would like us to bring! The Market is held at the Dvoor Farm off Route 12 in Flemington (111 Mine St., Flemington, NJ 08822).

Celebrating 20 years!

We started Toadshade Wildflower Farm to make native wildflowers, particularly perennials, more easily available. Our intention is to 1) provide native, perennial, propagated wildflower plants, 2) identify available plants clearly by both common and scientific name, and 3) clearly summarize the native range and growth requirements of the wildflowers for sale.

Accordingly, all of the plants that we offer are native (not alien, introduced, or naturalized) as well as we can determine. We propagate them all ourselves - no plants are dug from the wild! We have tried to list the most often used common names, the scientific names, the preferred growth habit, and the native range based on information from a number of sources (see references below). I would encourage you to try plants that are native to your area. Planted within their native ranges, in sites appropriate to them, native perennial wildflowers will thrive and provide lasting color and interest for years to come.

Our website lists plants and seeds that are currently available and it will be updated when additional species become available.

If you have any particular native plants that you're looking for contact us. We always have new species coming along, so we may have what you are looking for (in small numbers.) If we don't have it, we'll try to add it to a future catalogue!
