Regional Plant Guides for Virginia

The Virginia Native Plant Society has been proud to partner with our state’s Coastal Zone Management to help with the creation of four Regional Plant Guides. These four guides feature native plants and include planting information and helpful photographs.  The first four  of the Guides are available for free as online publications, linked below.  Learn how the guides were created, which ones are still coming along, and how to obtain hard copies here:  Regional Plant Guides The VNPS also assisted with the fifth guide, the Piedmont Native Plant Guide, which was produced separately and is not yet available online.

The Piedmont Native Plant Guide

This guide was not produced with CZM funding. Instead, a partnership of local governmental and environmental groups, including VNPS, produced and funded the printing. It covers (north to south) Fauquier, Rappahannock, Culpeper, Madison, Green, Orange, Albemarle, Louisa, Fluvanna, Nelson and Buckingham Counties, and the City of Charlottesville.  These cost $10.00 and can be picked up at the Monticello gift shop, Ivy Nursery, and the Wintergreen Nature Foundation, as well as the office of the Thomas Jefferson Soil and Water Conservation District. Call before coming to make sure someone is there to help you.  (434) 975-0224 x101

The Piedmont Guide is also for purchase in Richmond at the monthly chapter meetings of the VNPS Pocahontas Chapter. Meetings are held at Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in the Education Complex. Upcoming meetings and their featured programs  are posted on our chapter’s website; the public is welcome to attend: Pocahantas Chapter Events
