WinterCreek Nursery is a full service nursery specializing in native plants of the high desert. Our goal is to produce high quality native plant nursery stock for a wide range of clients from homeowners to architects and contractors. We strive to maintain genetic diversity in our plant material in order to provide the best in adaptability and resilience for our customers. We offer design advice, help in plant selection for specific projects, or recommendations for habitat creation.
Seed Collection and Propagation
The majority of our plants are propagated at WinterCreek from seed or cuttings collected by our nursery staff. Most species are collected within Crook, Jefferson, or Deschutes counties, but we occasionally collect seed during outings throughout the dryland west. Our availability list inventories plants currently offered, but call the nursery if you don't see a species you're looking for.
With a little lead time, we can provide large quantities of individual species to meet project requirements. We also offer site specific propagule collection to provide genetic material adapted to the project location -- a common specification for restoration or rehabilitation contracts.
Plants shown here are some of our favorites, or favorites of our customers. We normally have approximately 130 species of native plants in stock, including trees, shrubs, forbs, and grasses. We'll occasionally change these profile photos, adding common and not-so-well-known plants suitable for landscapes or restoration projects.
