Plant Native Perennials

There are many benefits to planting native perennials in your landscape. Native perennials are significant in helping save the pollinators. Native perennials are indigenous to the United States and Canada. They are significant as they provide very important natural habitats and food sources to many of our native pollinating insects, bees and butterflies. Native plants generally grow well and require little care when grown in proper conditions. By planting any of these plants you help save all types of species and improve our environment.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
