Native Plants = Happy Gardens

These lovely varieties are available for planting in your garden now. Every year, it seems, there is more and more interest in supporting native species in our gardens. Not only are they beautiful but they help support the local ecology, and provide habitat for some very important pollinator species, which need our help!
