I ordered 3 spicebush (lindera benzoin) and 1 hoptree (ptelea trifoliata) in September 2016. We waited for October shipping due to heat in the shipping region. The bushes/tree were very well packed and had very healthy roots when received. Fast forward to April 2017, and I'm so thrilled with how healthy they look this spring as they emerge from winter dormancy. They each have brilliant new green leaf growth and look like they should be healthy and vigorous growers. I would not hesitate to order from this vendor again!

I ordered from Mail Order Natives for the first time in May - the plants arrived quickly and were packed well. I had one plant die but Amy at Mail Order Natives quickly agreed to send a new one.

Very good customer support/communication - I will be ordering again!

I ordered the following on April 28 of this year:

7 x Lindera benzoin Spicebush
2 x Brickellia cordifolia Flyr's Nemesis 1g

They were shipped promptly and arrived in good order. All have been planted and at this point appear to be thriving.

I am very pleased and am working on my next order.

I needed some native azaleas and had no luck through normal sources. The reviews were good, the prices were right, so I pulled the trigger for the first time with theses folks. I was impressed by the plant sizes and root systems. I pot all my mail order plants into a mix with my garden soil to generate more roots and acclimate them. After a brief scare by one of the five plants, they all look great after a month and I'm even happier.

This was my first experience with this company but I felt pretty confident ordering because of the good reviews here. The box had obviously been tossed around quite a bit, so I wasn't surprised that after 5 days , the plants inside looked a little rough with some breakage and heat stress. But I potted them up and set them in a sheltered spot and now, just a few days later, they all look great. They are very healthy and I am very pleased and can't wait to get them settled into their new home. Will definitely order from them again.

Plants arrived quickly, were carefully packaged, and both plant costs and shipping costs were very reasonable. Both items I ordered this winter have leafed out and look very healthy. Very good experience. I will use them again.

Mail-Order Natives has been able to make it into my Top 5 online native plant sources and that's saying a lot. I've now placed 2 orders, for 7 different plants, with them and every plant has thrived thus far. Their prices are very competitive, the plants are packaged well and the shipping charges are reasonable. They don't ship huge plants but every plant that I've received was extremely healthy, which is the most important aspect when purchasing plants. A small Red Buckeye that I planted in the Fall of 2013 is growing very vigorously this early Spring and will bloom for the first time!..:)

Amy is an absolute pleasure to work with and is very flexible and helpful. She'll answer any questions you have and her level of customer service makes return business something to look forward to.

I have ordered plants multiple times from Mail Order Natives over the years, and I have always been satisfied with the plants. Their selection is great, and they are highly responsive; their selection of natives is outstanding. Amy is a pleasure to work with, and their prices are reasonable. I used to order from ForestFarm, but Mail Order Natives is my go-to place now, and especially because I live in the Southeast.

I just received two big boxes of the most gorgeous plants, and they came two days after placing my order. They were lovingly packed, and one plant came with flowers. Amy responded quickly to my request to change the order, and the next thing you know, the plants were here. I don't think it can get any better.

Mail Order Natives is one of my favorite places to order from. I raise butterflies as a hobby and they always have the host plants I need. They also provide native plants that are nearly impossible to find elsewhere.

For my latest order, I was told they were on vacation and my plants would not ship until the following week (June 16). This was fine by me and my plants arrived today (June 18). They were well packed and I could still feel a bit of moisture despite it being mailed through the Florida heat. I ordered Wooly Pipevine and Dwarf Passion Vine. I can't wait until the caterpillars find them!

I have ordered from Mail Order Natives three times: twice recently and last autumn. Their plants are the best value for price, selection and quality. They have a purely "native" inventory. All the plants I've received are doing fantastic, very little adaptation time--it's like they are native to my yard. Mostly I've order chokeberries, iteas, euonymous americanus, cyrilla racemefolia, styrax americanus, ilex glabra, ilex amelanchier and something called lindera subcoriacea (bog spicebush). No frills website and minimal email notices but the orders come quickly--they'll depart the following Monday and arrive on Wednesday. Mail Order Nursery has been a great find for me, they are definitely one of my top 5 online nurseries. If you want hardy native plants for the southeast this is a great resource.

I ordered four trees from Mail Order Natives this spring. All arrived in very good condition. I am very pleased with the service from this company & the fact that the trees are all doing extremely well. They even included a really nice brochure listing butterfly host & nectar plants/trees.

I purchased 100 tree saplings from this nursery in the spring of 2011. I was VERY pleased with the plants. I was in the process of doing a large wildlife habitat planting that included over 1200 plants, trees, and shrubs. Of all the nurseries I dealt with Mail-Order Natives sent the largest, most healthly looking plants. I was very pleased with their service and would definately buy from them again. Highly recommend.

As usual, my order arrived quickly and in great shape. The pindo palm was larger than I expected. Everything I have ever gotten from Mail Order Natives has thrived. (Except for the chickasaw plum my husband ran over with the lawn mower. I will be ordering another next fall)

I have to say that I'm happy with my overall ordering experience with this company. All plants appear healthy, maybe a little beaten up due to several days in the shipping container, but that can't be helped. I ordered on the weekend, and received my plants the following Friday. I received exactly what I ordered, and got exactly what I expected. All were a nice size (especially for the price), apparently healthy, well packed, and with VERY reasonable shipping cost (unlike some of the others on here). The one caveat I have is the communication was difficult. Email bounced, and the phone number yielded an answering machine. I just chalk that up to the time of year. I'm sure they are shipping very large numbers of plants from the wholesale side of their business this time of year (late October), so I will give them a pass on that. Just glad they had time to get mine out the door.

They are definitely on my order from list.

This was my first experience ordering plants by mail and given I was in Tx and this was in July, I was a bit worried! I ordered 6 Florida Shield ferns the evening of 7/7/10 and they shipped the next day. I need not have worried - they arrived quickly and were very well packaged. Happy to have found a place I can trust, thanks to the reviews here.

I had a great experience with this company recently.

Ordered 6 pine trees over the internet. They shipped fast and arrived in *excellent* condition. Very healthy and green and ready for planting!

I also spoke to a real person on the phone about my order (because I spazzed out with *my* end of the internet purchase) and that experience, too, was very positive.

I ordered still MORE plants, this time over the phone. It was fast, easy, and as always, the plants arrived VERY well packed and very promptly. They were all in fine condition.

As far as I'm concerned this is a reliable, conscientious, company that does what it says in a timely manner.

Last summer we moved from MN to Texas - quite a change in learning about plants, flowers, etc. to grow in Tx vs MN. Ordered 4 American Beauty Berry plants in July from Mail Order Natives. They arrived and were planted in the hottest summer for a number of years! They not only survived the hottest summer, the coldest winter (for this part of TX) and are growing quite large and blooming!! So very happy with the service and plants received. Highly recommend mail order natives:):)

We ordered in the heat of Texas summer and the plants arrived in tip top condition. Not quite sure how they do it, but there was zero root girdling. The roots looked like they had been grown in air.

We ordered beautyberries & they were budding new leaves 4 days after planting. Pretty good!

I placed an order in summer, the wrong time to order plants. Because of this I expected "leftovers", which would be my own fault for ordering so late in the year. However I received very nice plants which were a bit upset with being shipped in the heat but healthy enough to bounce right back after transplanting. The roots were in great shape, and within two weeks in good soil and being watered, they look like they were put in during spring. Had Mail Order Natives not sent quality plants in the first place this would not have been possible. I will certainly buy from this company again.
