RNPP Native Seed Sale 2023
Notes on purchasing seed
1. Seeds are sold by the ounce or by the pound. Please be aware of the unit when adding items to your cart.
2. If you want to purchase 1 pound or more of seed, a restoration plan is required. See our blog post here about developing a restoration plan. Please email your restoration plans to email@example.com
3. We do not ship seeds. Rogue Native Plant Partnership encourages local utilization of locally collected and grown seeds. After the sale ends, we will contact you to arrange pick-up or delivery of your order.
4. Most native plants are adapted to the ecological conditions of their source region. We recommend purchasing seeds from the same ecoregion where they will be planted.
Rogue/Illinois/Scott Valleys (78a): This ecoregion includes the valleys formed by the Rogue, Illinois, and Scott Rivers in southwest Oregon. These valleys have diverse landscapes, including forests, grasslands, and agricultural areas. The Rogue River is a prominent feature and supports various habitats and wildlife.
Oak Savanna Foothills (78b): The Oak Savanna Foothills ecoregion consists of hilly areas characterized by open oak savannas and woodlands. These regions are often transitional between more densely forested areas and grasslands. Oak trees are a prominent feature, and these ecosystems support a mix of plant and animal species adapted to both open and wooded environments.
Klamath River Ridges (78g): The Klamath River Ridges ecoregion encompasses the elevated areas along the Klamath River. These ridges feature diverse terrain, potentially including forests, meadows, and rocky landscapes. The Klamath River itself is a significant waterway that shapes the ecosystem and provides habitat for various species.
Serpentine Siskiyous (78d): The Serpentine Siskiyous ecoregion includes areas with serpentine soils, which are high in minerals like magnesium and low in essential nutrients like calcium. Such soils often give rise to unique plant communities adapted to these challenging conditions. The Siskiyou Mountains play a role in shaping the landscape.
Coastal Siskiyous (78f): The Coastal Siskiyous ecoregion refers to the coastal areas near the Siskiyou Mountains. This region features a mix of coastal habitats, including forests, wetlands, and rocky shores. Coastal influences such as fog and marine influences shape the ecosystems and support a variety of species.

A note about seed pricing:
In general, RNPP seed prices attempt to account for the time and effort involved in collecting seed. For many species, it can take 2-4 people several hours to wild collect, and an hour or so of hand-cleaning to produce an ounce of clean seed. For the larger lots that have been produced by farmers, the cost is lower due to the efficiencies inherent in agriculture. Also, note that these lots do not have viability testing data available. We are confident that the wild-collected lots have high viability but there are always uncertainties.
We do not ship items. After the sale ends, we will contact you to arrange pick-up or delivery in the Rogue Valley.
