Native's Are Easy To Grow & Maintain
Native plants are plants that are native to a specific area and are often found growing wild.
For example, Brown Eyed Susan (Rudbeckia triloba) is located over large portions of the country. Its native habitat is open, moist woods. Their long-lasting blooms make them an excellent choice for anyone living in zones 3-9. It spreads easily. Or try the Rough Blazing Star, found in eastern North America from the east coast west to Texas and the Dakotas and as far north as southern Ontario. It needs little maintaining and can look good anywhere; native to the Eastern part of North America. It grows in large clusters or clumps of soft pink flowers. It is a homeowner favorite because of its fullness and color.
Native plants are typically very easy to grow, requiring minimal maintenance
Designing a garden with a focus on native and local plants is becoming increasingly popular with environmentally and historically conscious gardeners. There are many reasons, but chief among them is the fact that these plants are designed to thrive in the environment, leading to excellent results with less work. When deciding where to start with a native garden, there are a few key areas to keep in mind.
Blooming Native Plants
No garden is complete without the splashes of color that a thriving patch of flowers bring. When choosing which blooms to plant, keep wildflowers on the shortlist. Not only will they likely flourish with comparatively little effort, but it is a way to help preserve the historical landscape and ensure the survival of these native plants for future generations. Studies have also shown that planting wildflowers are beneficial to the local bee population. With that said, attention should still be paid to water, sun, and soil requirements when planning out a garden with these bee-friendly blooms.
Native Grass Plants
Native grasses are another environmentally-friendly choice. They not only contribute to the lush feel of a mature garden but help to cover and protect the soil. Being ideally suited to their environment, they will require less work than imported, purely ornamental grasses. Not only will native grasses often require less water, but they generally can survive with fewer chemicals and pesticides as well. There are many varieties available, giving landscape designers plenty of options to suit a wide range of aesthetics. These healthy, beautiful native grasses are an excellent addition to both simple and ornate garden designs.
Native Oak Trees
Trees, the most constant and lasting element of most gardens, also do better when native varieties are selected. Experienced landscapers are particular fans of oak trees, as their many types thrive all across the United States. There are oak trees that do well in the more Mediterranean climate of the Southwest, while other species enjoy the rainier, cooler weather of the Northeast.
Native Maple Trees
Maple trees are another well-liked species that have multiple varieties to choose from. From the Red Maple common on the east coast to the Bigleaf Maple found on the west coast, gardeners who want to choose native maple trees for their garden will have no trouble finding a suitable specimen. They also vary quite a bit in their appearance, so there is no need to compromise on design when selecting the perfect tree.
Native Edible Plants
No list of native plants would be complete without mentioning edible varieties. Even gardeners who want to avoid the traditional, but labor-intensive, the vegetable patch can quickly scatter a selection of delicious plants throughout their yard. Popular suggestions include berry bushes, fruit trees, and herbs. Not only do they share the ease of care already mentioned for other native plants, but they will be an excellent addition to local and traditional recipes.
