WHY CHOOSE NATIVE PLANTS?

 

  • Native wildflowers increase natural landscape beauty and add to Ontario's vast diversity of butterflies, insects, birds and mammals.
  • Native plants are an excellent choice for gardens and restoration projects because they: are low maintenance as they are hardier and more adaptable as they have lived in this region for hundreds of years;
  • Reduce the use of pesticides by out competing invasive species;
  • Provide a source of food for many different types of insects, birds and mammals;
  • Can help attract a variety of pollinator species to your garden including native bees, butterflies and insects;
  • They promote overall biodiversity and ecological health of ecosystems
Native Plant Nurseries defines native plants as a native plant is any species existing prior to European colonization
