Adding native plants to your garden or woodland areas is a good investment in both beauty and biodiversity.

Hidden Savanna Nursery, owned and operated by Chad and Kristin Hughson, covers 33 acres at 100 N. Van Kal Street on the outskirts of Kalamazoo. They specialize in plants that are native to Southwest Michigan.

Native plants thrive in our climate zone and are seldom affected by pests or drought. They can be beautiful. They attract and support native insects, some of which are pollinators and others that are a good food source for birds and caterpillars (butterflies).

Hidden Savanna Nursery is a on-site retail operation selling grasses, wildflowers, shrubs, and some trees. Ask Chad about the best size for transplanting the shrubs and trees. They have limited sales dates, but they will respond to your email requesting an appointment. Their email is info@hiddensavanna.com. They accept cash and checks in payment.
