About Us

Bay Natives is a retail nursery at 10 Cargo Way, corner of Jennings Street, on San Francisco's historic and industrial southern waterfront (Pier 96). We are open from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. weekdays, 9:30 to 5:30 weekends, closed major holidays and are recognized as the Bay Area's premier source for California native plants.



We offer distinctive and little-known native selections for the urban landscape. With a wide range of rare and endemic Bay Area locals, plus many choice specimens from across the state of California, our inventory carries more than 200 native plant species. Local San Francisco plants remain a specialty, but we also take pride in our extensive oak, manzanita, and trillium collections. Please note our array of interesting and unusual pot sizes.

When founded in 2005, Bay Natives was an online business only, and we have retained the shopping cart function on our website to this day. Inventory listed on the website is currently available in our store and we keep this database accurate to the minute. Turnaround on most online orders will be 2-3 days; we can hold your plants for pick-up or deliver to your home or jobsite. Please register before shopping online, read our terms and conditions, and don't forget to browse our full plant list.

We can broker or contract-grow orders for larger quantities of plants than you may find listed here. Please call or email for details. Wholesale suppliers can check our current wish list to see what we are looking to buy.
