Native Plants Support Life

Native plants are those that occur naturally in a specific ecoregion and have evolved alongside native wildlife for thousands of years, and through the process of natural selection, have developed an interdependence to one another. They are the base of local food webs and are therefore fundamental to healthy ecosystems.


There are many benefits to gardening with native plants, but the most important is that they regenerate and support biodiversity, and in doing so, improve the habitat around us. When we reintroduce native plants into our gardens, we have the unique opportunity to tip the scale in nature's favor by restoring lost and fragmented habitats.  Native plants are not only beautiful and ecologically beneficial, but they are also easier to care for and require fewer resources and maintenance than exotic species from other parts of the world. They thrive under their natural conditions - soils, moisture, and climate - requiring less watering and time-consuming maintenance.


Gardening with native plants is one of the easiest, most impactful actions you can take to address the loss of biodiversity around us. Just plant the plants and watch our local wildlife follow!
