Promoting non-invasive plants for California.
PlantRight™ was founded in 2005 to address the ongoing sale of invasive garden plants in California in an environmentally sound and economically viable manner. Though more than half of California’s invasive plants were originally introduced through horticultural channels, no cohesive effort previously existed to work with the nursery industry to prevent the spread of invasive plants in the state.
Since its inception, PlantRight has brought together leaders from the nursery industry, environmental advocates, academics, and professional landscapers to find cost-effective ways to stop the sale of invasive plants. Recognizing that prevention is the most effective way to combat their spread, PlantRight offers an opportunity for the nursery industry to take the lead on this issue, while protecting California’s unique biodiversity and curtailing the need for regulation.
