Native Plant Resources​

The next time you are at a garden center, select a native plant for your landscape.  Choosing the right plant for the right location will mean less maintenance and more beauty.  

Need help deciding on a plant or plant combinations?  Contact the Extension Horticulture Help Desk, staffed by Master Gardener Volunteers for assistance or go to one of the following links to help with selection. Describe the site (e.g. sun, shade, wet, dry shade) and we will help you select a low maintenance, beautiful native tree, shrub or herbaceous plant.
