Two Wholesale Nurseries Create a Native Plant Brand

American Beauties supports the National Wildlife Federation

"There's a real buzz among gardeners and homeowners about native plants and plants that attract wildlife to the landscape," states Tim Kane, Marketing Director for Prides Corner Farms. "We are looking forward to providing outstanding plants, marketing, and information to the consumer so they can turn this buzz into actual working, living landscapes while helping support the message of the National Wildlife Federation."

(RESTON, VA) Together, NWF, Pride's Corner Farms and North Creek Nurseries are inspiring consumers to garden using plants native to their region. Native plants are beneficial to wildlife while adding beauty to the garden. Proceeds from the sales of American Beauties will benefit NWF's education and conservation programs.

"We are very excited to work with Prides Corner Farms and North Creek Nursery to create this extensive native plant line. We always recommend gardeners use native plants in their garden in order to provide the best overall food sources for wildlife. Native plants also generally require less fertilizer, less water, and less effort in controlling pests," says Craig Tufts, National Wildlife Federation's Chief Naturalist.

American Beauties, LLC is a partnership between Prides Corner Farms and North Creek Nurseries dedicated to promoting native plants to bring life to the garden. Since each region of the country has its own native plants, the eventual goal of the partnership is to grow and distribute American Beauties plants on a regional basis throughout the United States and help promote the message of NWF while doing so.

National Wildlife Federation is America's conservation organization protecting wildlife for our children's future.
