Kind Earth Growers is a wholesale nursery located in Ottsville, Pa.  We are conveniently located between Philadelphia and New York City in eastern PA.  We were founded to meet the demand for native wetland and dry-site perennials used in ecological restoration, storm-water management, and functional landscape design.

Our plants are seed grown from open pollinated, native populations to help preserve regional genetic diversity. We strive to produce high quality plants which provide biological fuction for green infrastructure projects, and are the backbone for ecologically resilient native landscapes.  

Our plants are grown in PL72''s, DP50''s, and 4" containers.

  • Pontederia cordata
    Pontederia cordata, Pickerelweed, is a perennial aquatic emergent plant. Grows 2-4 ft, and blooms June- September....

  • Pontederia cordata, Pickerelweed, is a common sight in quiet fresh water areas. Shallow water is the habitat for this beautiful species. The native forms are usually shades of blue-purple.  Pontederia cordata flowers from summer to fall, with the flower stalks reaching to about 2 feet above the water.  Pickerelweed provides food and shelter for many animals. Nectar feeding insects visit the flowers and fish lurk in the shade of the foliage. Small fish find protection in the thicker areas of Pickerelweed while larger predatory fish, like Bass and Pickerel hide in the more open edges, waiting to ambush prey.  Pickerelweed is excellent for absorbing nutrients from water and improving water clarity. For maximum nutrient removal, the top growth can be cut off and removed (composted) before the plants die back in the fall. This is a common species for bio-purification systems.
