Our Story


My name is Nick Fuller and as a fellow native plant enthusiast, I saw a need for an
outlet that focused on plants native to Illinois. In 2014, I set out to solve that problem by creating Natural Communities Native Plants. We have gone about that solution in a slightly unusual way.  Rather than a traditional "bricks and mortar" store locked into a single location, we felt that by housing ourselves online we could better serve the large geographic area, making plants available to all.  We hope that you find our store convenient with online shopping and shipping to your home.  
Why We Are Different
We are laser focused on restoring the Chicago, Illinois, and Midwest areas.
Who We Are
