Native Plants

Many gardeners think of native plants only in a casual meadow-like mixture. But that's just one style of garden. There can be a place for native plants even in the most formal setting. After all, every plant in any garden is native somewhere, and gardeners have found ways to use them all. Our Native Perennials and Grasses are indigenous to the United States and Canada.
