First things first. What is a native plant?
Native plants live, thrive and work where they’re supposed to. Native plants attract native pollinators, birds, and other wildlife. They filter nutrients from water which restores the soil while adding a new complex, beautiful component to your yard. Native plants live, thrive, and work where they’re supposed to – they’re from here, and they know their way around
Why should you go with native plants?
Simply, native plants have a huge impact on water and soil health and local pollinators. Many native plants are host plants for certain bees, butterflies, or other insects, meaning many important actors in local ecosystems could not survive without those plants. For example: Monarch Butterflies only lay their eggs on Milkweed plants, loss of Milkweed habitat has led to a 95% decrease in Monarch populations. The right plants understand the environment they’re grown in and contribute to making it more healthy and sustainable.
