Native Plants Have Many Benefits

A native plants is a plant that originate in and is native to a geographical region. In other words, it naturally occurs in the area and can be found in nature.

Why Use Native Plants

  • Using native plants in the landscape makes sense for a whole host of reasons. Because they are native, they are used to our conditions.
  • Native plants are programmed to survive our winters and summer droughts.
  • Native plants are tolerant of local pests. This is not to say they will not sustain some damage, but far less than introduced plants. They do, however, run the risk of being damaged by pests that have been introduced to the area.
  • Native plants, once established need less on going care.
  • Native plants provide food and habitat to wildlife.

Selecting The Right Native Plants

There are a lot of native plants available on the market these days. Just like when selecting non-native plants for the garden, consider site conditions such as light exposure, soil moisture and soil quality. In this regard, native plants are no different than any other plant. They only thrive where the conditions are right for them.
