Additional sizes (such as cone-tainers) can be grown on a contract basis.
We are not currently accepting used pots other than the ones that came with your Pipilo plants. We will have a pickup at the end of the season in Missoula, so hold onto them until then!
Wholesale pricing available to qualified organizations. Contact for details.
Tier 2 plants are labeled on their product page. Plant prices may vary based on seasonal difficulties and availability, so the final price might not match the table below.

Pipilo is a private nursery (for now) and therefore we are not open to the public. You may make an appointment to visit the nursery in person, however we recommend you peruse and order plants online (it's actually a really great way to pick out things that will work for your space).
Delivery and Payment
We deliver for free to a location in the Rattlesnake (Missoula) where you can pick your order up at your convenience. There is no minimum order for that service and we drop orders off once or twice a week. We will deliver within 150 miles of Missoula for a fee. Contact us for current rates.
We will contact you following your order to finalize pick-up details. If you haven't received an email within a week, please check your spam folder! Chances are your plants are waiting to be picked up!! Since we can't make it there to water every day, we're not responsible for plants that dry up at the delivery location (although if we notice an abandoned order we'll make every attempt to revive it and will reach out to you).
Payment for orders is due at time of delivery or pickup. We accept cash, local checks, and most major cards.
We do not ship plants at this time. If you aren't from western Montana, do a search for native plant nurseries in your area!
In addition to nursery production, we offer services for research, small-scale restoration, and landscaping projects. We specialize in sourcing and growing ecotypes specific to your project. Please contact us for additional information.
Contract growing is available for small restoration and landscaping projects. We also grow plugs for research projects, with special attention on uniform lot production. Growing time depends on species and size, but most plants need at least a growing season to mature. Contact us early in the planning process!
Local seed collection is crucial for maintaining genetic integrity in your restoration and research projects. We plan the logistics and timing of all collections, and clean the seed as required. Because seed collection falls in narrow windows each year, one year of lead time is generally required for these services. Seed can also be grown out if desired.
If you aren't sure what would do best at your site, we will come have a look and provide you with a list of plants that will succeed, highlighting micro-sites, potential trouble areas, and weeds to be wary of.
Building? We are happy to provide your landscaper with a list of suitable plants for your lot.
