About native plants:

Offering local residents the opportunity to purchase these plants to help improve their own landscapes is an exciting opportunity. Knowing your yard and the growing attributes (amount of light, soil moisture and size of the planting site) will help you choose the right plants for your needs.

There are many benefits to using native plants in your landscape, including: 

  • Using native plants helps restore the range of species important to local ecology
  • Native species are deeper rooted and can help increase water absorption
  • Native plants are adapted to local weather patterns and are more tolerant of changes, when sited correctly
