Native plants are essential to the local biodiversity preservation of these plants, as well as to animals and birds also native to the area. Such plants are also important to humans and evolution. And, a movement has begun to shift from mass-produced plants available at nurseries nationwide to focusing on native plant landscape.
What are Native Plants?
Each region of each country has a unique ecological system comprised of specific plant life that has thrived in that region for centuries. The plants that are native to North America are far different from those found in the Amazon. Many native plant species in the Northern Hemisphere are unable to survive in tropical climates and vice versa. Native plants in their proper habitat provide harmony to the delicate balance of life between animals, plants, and people. As these plants are removed and replaced by non-native plants, the ecosystem is disrupted.
Benefits to Native Plants
Several benefits exist to using native plants in your garden and landscape. Native plants require far less maintenance. You will not have to use as much fertilizer or pesticides because these species have natural tolerances to local pests. These plants also help to provide essential nutrients to their native soil and are beneficial to local water supplies and air quality. The more native plants you have around your house, and in your lawn, the less you have to water the garden or mow the grass which saves precious freshwater supplies and reduces carbon emissions from lawnmowers.
Caring for Native Plants
The best way to care for native plants is to avoid using non-native plants in your landscape and garden. By doing so, your plants will be able to thrive without having to fight for nutrients to survive. Even though native plants require less care, you will likely still be required to provide them with water during dry times and, in some instances, to trim them back, so they keep growing. Try to use reclaimed rainwater for watering and organic fertilizer such as compost to keep your plants and your neighborhood as healthy as possible.
Join the native plant movement and reap the rewards. You will save money on plants, care, and maintenance. And, native plants are significantly better for the health of other native plant life, birds, animals and humans.

Pennsylvania sedge grass is a grass-like perennial that produces low-lying clumps. The plugs can be planted about 12 inches apart from each other during the fall and will produce lush foliage with little maintenance. This type of plant provides excellent ground cover, and some even need to mow only two or three times a year. Pennsylvania sedge grass thrives in partially sunlit areas.
Virginia Blue Bell - Mertensia virginica
The Virginia bluebell is also known as the Virginia cowslip, lungwort oyster leaf, and the Roanoke bell. Like most flowers, the Virginia bluebell blooms in the Spring. The plant is native to all of eastern North America, but it is most common in Virginia. The Virginia Blue Bell can grow to be about two feet high and features, and as its name suggests, has blue, bell-shaped flowers at the top of the stem. Even though the flowers are blue when they are fully bloomed, the blooms begin as dark pink. The flower is unable to participate in self-fertilization, so it needs to rely on insect life to reproduce. Butterflies are the primary pollinator of the Virginia Blue Bell, but Bumblebees are also able to spread the plant as well. The Virginia bluebell does best in sandy soil, but they can survive in many different environments. The plant is susceptible to disturbances, and they are likely to over-watering. It should not be attempted to transplant a Virginia bluebell, especially while they are in bloom. If a transplant is necessary for these plants, it is best to wait until the fall when the plant is out of bloom. This will increase the chance of a successful transplant.
