What are Native Plants?

Species that occurred in North America prior to European settlement are considered native. 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.

  • Native plants are the foundation of our natural food chain and the key for attracting and supporting birds, butterflies and other wildlife.
  • These plants are adapted to our regional conditions and often require less maintenance and rarely require the use of pesticides and fertilizers.
  • They promote biodiversity and help strengthen and support local ecosystems.
