Native Plants

Definition: Native Plants

Native plants are those plants that have naturally evolved in a specific region's ecosystem. These are plants that were growing naturally in the area before humans introduced plants from distant places. Native plants are naturally adapted to their specific region, so they require no special care, including irrigation or fertilization, to thrive. They are pest resistant and disease resistant, and are truly low-maintenance gardening and landscaping plants.

So glad to see more push for native plants. I've been plotting a rain garden this year and researching decorative grasses and flowers that are native to KS. We have a great resource website in my metro if anyone wants more info on rain gardens
