Native Gardening

Support Wildlife

Choosing to use native plants will help provide wildlife with the ideal habitat they need to survive. Native plants produce showy flowers and an abundant amount of nectar, pollen, and seeds that will provide food and cover for native wildlife. By planting native plants, you will have a beautiful yard that will also benefit wildlife.

Native plants are a perfect food source for hummingbirds, butterflies, and other beneficial insects, birds and mamals. Native wildlife prefer native plants and many species of butterflies and other insects depend on specific native plants for their food and for laying their eggs.

Low Maintenance

Native plants generally require little care once established. Native plants root deep into the ground, and once established they will only need occasional rain fall to meet their water needs.

Why Native Plants

Native plants are adapted to the local climate and soil conditions where they naturally occur and have evolved over time. Unlike non-native plants, native plants are hardy, less susceptible to pests and diseases and unlikely to become invasive.
