North American Native Plants

What is a native plant? There is no one size fits all definition of a native plant, however, the best definition is it is a plant that occurs naturally in the place where it evolved. Native plants can be both continentally and regionally organized. Wayside's Horticulturists put together a collection of plants that are native to North America. This includes plant species that occur naturally, or have existed for many years in the prairies, savannas, and woodlands across this country. Whether you're gardening in a small space or restoring acres of habitat, native plants support life and biodiversity, and play a crucial role in soil and water conservation. Native plants are the heart of the true American landscape. They boast unique and enduring beauty, a stunning variety of colors and textures, and their hardiness and adaptability are unsurpassed.
