North American Native Shrubs & Vines

North American Native Shrubs & Vines

All gardeners know they are never alone in the garden. Birds, butterflies, insects and many other creatures may visit or live among the plants and in the soil. The greater the diversity of plants in your garden, the greater the amount of life it may support. By including native shrubs and vines in your landscape, you can supply local wildlife, with the food and habitat they need for survival. Native shrubs and vines are well adapted to local conditions and will often thrive with less care than a non-native plant.

The varieties featured below are native to North America, or are improved selections of North American native plants. Contact your local Cooperative Extension office for information on plants native to your specific region.
