Donna Bolls, President of Charlotte Wildlife Stewards, says they’ll have rudbeckia, echinacea, monarda (Bee Balm), goldenrod, milkweed, and aster.
According to the North Carolina Native Plant Society, “Using native plants contributes to the health and often the restoration of an ecosystem.”
- They require fewer resources to maintain, because they’re suited to thrive in this climate (and zone.)
- They provide food and shelter for native wildlife.
- They help sustain native butterflies, beneficial insects, birds, mammals, reptiles, and other native species.
Don’t miss the chance to get your hands on locally grown, easy-to-grow native perennials for your garden. Don’t have a garden? These plants are a great way to get started creating pollinator habitat in your yard, no matter the size.
