A few decades ago, native perennial sources were limited, plant choices were few, and interest in gardening with natives was marginal. Since then, things have changed considerably—North American gardeners, on the whole, have embraced their native plant heritage. A good part of the change has to do with the fact that native plants have become such obvious, sensible choices for today’s more ecologically focused garden. Combining beauty of form, texture, and color with traits like low maintenance, drought tolerance, and the ability to attract abundant wildlife, native plants are a win-win proposition." Appropriately sited native plants require no watering, no fertilizer, and no pesticides. Many natives offer so much in addition to their showy blooms. Locally native plants are known as local ecotypes, and are well adapted to the soils, animals, and climate of the immediate area.
