While we have made every effort to provide sufficient and accurate information, we recommend you use this as a springboard in planning your garden. For additional help in determining if plants are suitable for your garden, please consult with a nursery with native plant expertise. Our native plant supplier list will help you find one near you. And although we have included some beneficial non-native plants we highly recommend plants native to your region.

Ensure plants are not wild collected as this has a detrimental effect on our natural areas.
