Growing a Healthy Habitat Together!

What we have for you

About our nursery

Pollinator Friendly Nursery is a family-owned, local nursery dedicated to growing native perennial plants to support natural or restored habitats in Southern Wisconsin (zone 5A). We also grow other plants to support pollinators and to beautify your landscaping. You are welcome to visit our gardens to see established plants. We gather seeds from our own native plants to produce new plants each year. Seeds from our plants are also available for sale if you wish to grow your own.

The Importance of Native Perennials

A healthy natural habitat that includes native perennial plants will provide a flourishing ecosystem that supports native insects and animals. Flowering native plants nourish pollinators including bees, butterflies, birds and others.  Pollination is essential for the production of seed and future generations of a species, and for the production of food that we all need.

What our customers are saying

"Be sure to add this Lake Country Pollinator Friendly Nursery as a “must stop” for your native plant needs. An amazing selection awaits you – favorites such as bee balm, daisies, lupine, zinnias – and so many more. Plants are healthy and well-cared for. Karen is an inspiring and knowledgeable gardener, committed to encouraging and helping  others to create beautiful and sustainable habitats for pollinators. You can also visit her at the Delafield Farmer’s Market."

"A great source for pollinator plants! Grown locally by wonderful friends whose mission is to benefit butterflies, insects and nature. A must check out if seeking natures beneficial plants!"

Nancy R.- Wales, WI

“We have a number of plants from the Pollinator Friendly Nursery growing in our garden.  They were hardy and provided beautiful blooms for us to enjoy and a natural habitat for the butterflies and bees to feed on.  The owners, Jim and Karen, of the nursery are very knowledgeable and the nursery itself is naturally beautiful.  Highly recommended!"

Anita J. - Palmyra, WI

"Jim & Karen reside amidst a gorgeous Lupine field. They have added even more native perennials in their yard to create additional gardens that bloom for months...it is beautiful! Now, they are sharing both their plants and seeds with others so we can attempt to do the same. Their plants are hardy and attract colorful butterflies and a variety of bees from spring into the fall. Beautify your yard and help support our smallest creatures naturally by visiting the Pollinator Friendly Nursery!"
