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!
