Distribution is shown only for a search using the Species tab. The full distributions of all taxa from the results of a species search are shown. To filter by non-native status (adventive, cultivated, naturalized, other, uncertain), use the search box in the table. If a search within the table fails because of a slow network connection, you may need to export the data to search within the rows.

The NPGS distributes plant germplasm to professional scientific research individuals and organizations, and verified plant breeders. Requests from producers and educators will be considered on a case-by-case basis, but only when NPGS germplasm that is not readily available from commercial sources is a justified requirement. NPGS germplasm is not available for individual, home, or community gardening. Requests to support educational objectives are typically considered only for college-level projects. Please view the short video on the NPGS for more details.
