Ohio Native Plant Nursery

Columbia Station, Ohio

Organically Raised Ohio Native Perennials


Marty and I have owned and operated Nodding Onion Gardens LLC, in Columbia Station, Ohio since 2010. We established our family business with the goal of providing locally sourced, organically raised, quality native plants.This continues to remain our mission!

Organic practices - We are proudly implementing holistic agricultural practices.

Our Passion - At Nodding Onion Gardens, we propagate and raise a variety of perennial Ohio wildflowers that are suitable for either: rain, prairie, woodland or pollinator gardens.

Diversity - To encourage diversity in our stock we raise the majority of our Ohio native wildflowers from seed.

Our Vision for Your Community

That small backyard wildflower gardens become the norm in the Cleveland, Ohio region and beyond. Collectively, these gardens will contribute to an improved ecosystem for both wildlife and future generations.
