Why Native Plants?

Why Natives?

#1 – Native plants save money! They prefer little to no soil amendments when planting, don’t like fertilizers and need far less water than non-native plants.

#2 – Native plants attract and feed the hummingbirds and butterflies that entertain us and grace our yards.
Many of the plants in our native plant sale attract pollinators like hummingbirds, butterflies and bees! 

#3 – Native plants attract and help support native insects, birds and bees that eat the “pests” in the garden such as ants, fleas, aphids and flies. This can reduce pesticide usage and risk of exposure for pets and children.
