Native Perennials Are Tough, Adaptable, And A Haven For Wildlife

Because native plants occur naturally and grow wild in North America, these easy-to-grow plants play an important role in thriving gardens. Native plants and native hybrids are adaptable and low-maintenance, and they are more likely to survive swings in temperature, rainfall, and humidity than cultivated ornamental and non-native plants. Further, native plants have mutually beneficial relationships with pollinators and wildlife, making them the best choice for a garden that provides food and habitat to support bees, birds, butterflies, and beneficial insects.
