North American Native Plants and Bulbs - There are many benefits to planting varieties native to the part of the world in which you garden. These plants developed to thrive in the soil conditions, weather patterns and among the pollinators and herbivores born in the same location. This makes them easy to please, highly attractive to the butterflies and hummingbirds you love, naturally resistant to insects and deer and rabbits, and generally needing less water, fuss and maintenance than plants brought in from other parts of the world. Come, meet some of your neighbors. You might decide to offer them a home in your garden!
