The Advantages Of Buy Plants specifically For Your State (PA)
Buying plants native to Pennsylvania is a great way to protect the natural beauty of the state. There are many different reasons to plant native Pennsylvania plants, but here are a few ways that you are helping protect Pennsylvania's natural resources when you do.
Provide Home for Birds
There are over 80 species of birds including the horned grebe, scarlet tanager, gadwall, and ring-neck duck which have had over 90 percent of their summer habitat destroyed. Therefore, planting native plants helps to feed these birds, provide housing and supports them pollinate remaining plants. Additionally, many native plants like buttonbush and black-eyed Susans naturally attract butterflies that serve as critical pollinators.
Stop Soil Erosion
A significant portion of Pennsylvania's soil washes down rivers and streams into the Atlantic Ocean each year. Native plants like vetch, rye, and clover send out nets of roots helping to hold topsoil in place. Furthermore, when tilled back into the ground, they help feed the soil with valuable nutrients.
Native plants store carbon helping to slow down climate warming by helping to keep carbon dioxide from building up in the atmosphere. Furthermore, as a byproduct of photosynthesis, oxygen in the air is created by plants.
Require Less Water
Native plants usually require less water than plants introduced into the environment. After becoming established, you can enjoy their unique beauty while working less to keep your yard looking great. Most native plants have deep root systems allowing them to thrive even when little rain falls. Additionally, these plants require less fertilizer and pesticides than plants introduced into an environment.
There are so many different species of native plants that thrive in Pennsylvania that are beautiful to look at throughout the growing season including red and yellow columbine blooming from April through June, orange butterfly weed blooming during the hot summer months, white wood asters blooming during the fall and great blue lobelia that are often still thriving when the first snow flies. Do not overlook native grasses like prairie dropseed, little bluestem, and switchgrass allowing you to add different textures and even more color to your landscape.
