Why Grow Native Plants?
Native plants are the secret to a thriving garden! Unlike varieties transported from other climates, natives are acclimated to local soil conditions and precipitation, so they grow almost effortlessly. Read on to find out how these garden champions can transform your landscape as well as contribute to nurturing the planet.
Reap Exponential Benefits
Garden, gardener, and wildlife all benefit from native plants in multiple ways:
*Water conservation – rain meets most irrigation needs.
*Minimization of soil erosion/rainwater runoff.
*Nutrient-rich soil undisturbed by chemicals.
*A natural, healthy landscape unhampered by disease.
*Time and money saved due to low maintenance.
*Haven for pollinators, including butterflies.
*Food and shelter for wildlife, especially birds.
Nurture Earth’s Guardians
Native plants demand little while providing an abundance of health benefits for people and animals. They are a critical part of ecosystem function, most notably for feeding and sheltering wildlife, butterflies, and birds.
Without these plants sustaining birds, the avian population would severely decline, harming global ecosystems. Birds assist in food production by dropping seeds and carrying plants locally and across continents. In addition to being pollinators, these winged marvels control pests, and maintain habitat balance (predator/prey and plant/herbivore).
Birds even help fertilize marine ecosystems! Seabirds feed out in the ocean and their droppings leach into the water. This matter contains nutrients that fertilize nearby coral reefs. Contributions birds make on behalf of the earth are far and wide.
Find Perfectly Matched Plants
Start a garden with native plants for your growing area, and you will soon be enjoying immense beauty and bounty. Choose from flowers, grasses, shrubs, and trees. Many of these plants attract flocks of butterflies and moths which attach caterpillar hosts to leaves and stems. The more caterpillar hosts, the more butterfly and moth pollinators! Find native plants and a ranking of which ones have the most butterflies and moths using them for caterpillar hosts at this online resource for native plants. It is the only source that includes such a ranking.
