Six years ago when we re-landscaped our backyard it was a challenge to decide which native plants to include. Other folks have told me they’ve struggled with this too.
I’ve updated my website and added some resources. I hope they will help folks who are new to native plants or those who want to add some natives to their existing gardens. There are new images of butterflies and plants in the photo galleries, and I’ve added pages about native plants, butterflies, and the story of our backyard.
Finally, I’ve created a chart of twenty-five of my favorite backyard plants. Here’s a sample.
I don’t meant that these are “the” twenty-five plants that everyone should plant. However, they would be a good addition to most any yard and there are plants that are attractive at various times throughout the growing season.
I hope this website encourages folks to do more with native plants. What else would be helpful?
