Why Use Native Plants?

Native or indigenous plants…
  • Naturally occur in the area they evolved
  • Are adapted to local soil, rainfall, and temperature conditions
  • Have developed natural defenses to many insects and diseases
  • Grow with minimal use of water, fertilizers, and pesticides (which is good for our local waterways and the Bay)
  • Provide food and habitat for local wildlife species (like butterflies!)
  • Are fun and beautiful!
