Native Plants Are Easy To Grow & Maintain

Native Perennials are plants that are native to a specific area of our country and are often found growing in the wild. For example, Black Eyed Susan is located over large portions of the United States. Its native habitat is open, moist woods. Their long-lasting blooms make them an excellent choice for anyone living in hardiness zones 3-9. It will self-seed where happy.

Swamp Milkweed is usually hardy and an easy to grow perennial. It is native to the Eastern part of North America. It grows in large clusters or clumps of soft pink flowers. It is a child's favorite because of its fullness, color and its ability to attract Monarch Butterflies which will lay their eggs on the undersides of the leaves.

When choosing Native perennials to grow in your garden it is often misstated by some that the plants should be indigenous to within 25 miles of your home. this has been proven to be false over the years. As in the case of migrating monarchs which can fly hundreds of miles. Perhaps swamp milkweed is not native to within the 25-mile radius of your garden but the monarchs will certainly thank you for providing the sole larval food source.
