What are native plants?

Native plants are plants that are indigenous to a particular region or ecosystem and have developed, occurred, or existed naturally prior to human intervention. As a result, these plants are uniquely suited for the conditions of their natural environment. Native plants are important elements of a well-functioning ecosystem.

What are the benefits of planting natives?

Native plants are a sustainable option, as they tend to need less supplemental water, less fertilizer, and less maintenance due to their unique suitability to their endemic environment. Native plants are an important food source for local pollinators and increase biodiversity in your garden by attracting birds and wildlife.
