Using native plants in your landscape encourages wildlife and uses fewer resources.


Please exercise caution when using plant lists, particularly native plant lists. Older plant lists may include plants that seemed like a good idea at the time the list was published, but over time were found to be invasive or have other objectionable characteristics. Often native plant lists include plants that may not be a good choice for a residential landscape (or even a commercial landscape for that matter) even though they are native.

Some of our native plants need very specific habitats to thrive. And certain native plants are too robust for very small urban and suburban lots.

Please observe the Right Plant / Right Place method of choosing plants. First select plants you like. Then do some research to be sure the plants you like will perform well on your lot and not become a danger or a pest to you or others. Then edit your initial list accordingly.
