If you ask, why purchase native plants? It is an easy, economical step for caring for our environment. By planting native plants, we maintain the biodiversity of an area. Our native wildlife, especially birds, butterflies, pollinators, and other organisms have evolved with the plants here. If the plants are not present, much of the wildlife is unable to survive. Native plants are often more disease resistant than non-natives and they conserve our natural resources by using less water and lower maintenance.
