What are Native Plants?
Species that occurred in North America prior to European settlement. The distinction is made because of the changes that have resulted from the introduction of exotic, ornamental plants into the U.S. from other continents.

  • The foundation of our natural food chain and the key for attracting and supporting birds, butterflies and other wildlife
  • Are adapted to our regional conditions and may require less maintenance, rarely requiring the use of pesticides and fertilizers
  • Promote biodiversity, helping strengthen and support local ecosystems
