Mid-Atlantic Native Woody Plants in Need of Propagation

In spite of centuries of interest in North American flora, it was not until the 20th and 21st centuries that a concentrated focus on cultivation of native plants has emerged. This focus has been spurred, in part, by a proliferation of environmental regulations and support of Federal, State, and local programs. In the Mid-Atlantic States, only 20 to 30 percent of the thousands of native plant species are produced in nurseries. The table included with this article provides a brief list of plants that are in need of propagation to increase the diversity of available plant material for restoration, conservation, and landscaping. This paper was presented at a joint meeting of the Northeast Forest and Conservation Nursery Association and Southern Forest Nursery Association (Kent Island, MD, July 20–23, 2015).
