Family owned, Wicklein’s Native Plants has been in business for 65 years. Walt Wicklein Sr. opened the business in 1954 as a retail water garden nursery. As a third generation company we specialize in growing native wetland and upland grasses and perennials. We supply high quality plant material for many types of restoration projects including stormwater ponds, stream and shoreline mitigation, erosion control, rain gardens, and floating islands. We also supply native plants for privately and publicly owned ponds and water features. We have the capacity to contract and custom grow on a large scale.
