Native plants occurred in the region before settlement by Europeans. They are uniquely adapted to the soil and climate of the area, and play an important role in the ecosystem. They co-evolved with birds, butterflies, hummingbirds, wildlife, and pollinators and provide the habitat and food they need.
There are native plants adapted to thrive in any naturally occurring condition from wet, soggy clay to dry, gravelly soil, and from hot sun to full shade. When well placed, once established they do not require supplemental watering, fertilizer, or pesticides.
Native plants provide four seasons of interest, with flowers in the spring, berries in the summer, brilliant colors in the fall, and interesting bark and twig patterns in the winter, along with a non-stop show of visiting butterflies, birds and beneficial insects.
