Wild Wonders

Native and wild North American plants from the fields and forests


What are native plants?

Not every plant grows everywhere. Many have travelled around the globe before arriving in your yard or garden. 

But some plants really did grow up around here. 

Native plants are important because they were created to fit into their ecosystem, while working and mixing well with other native plants. 

Plants that are not native can sometimes cause problems. These are what we call “invasive” species. Without a natural balance and cooperation in the ecosystem, invasive plants can overtake an area and cause the native plants to die off. This disrupts the entire system.

The more we appreciate and foster the natural and beautiful native plants, the better we can help the ecosystems around us continue to grow, thrive and stay healthy.
